wow, no DTC stated, so we must guess which one, and IS KEY to the cause..
ah , smog fails for CEL glowing
said but true
and it dont lie, the switch , conn. or wires to it are bad.
the real question is where is it and how to test it.
you can google neutral safety switch all day and learn what it does.
The TJ jeep
has. the 42RLE box.
TRS it has. "transmission range, switch"
here it is.

The Transmission Range Sensor (TRS) is mounted
to the top of the valve body inside the transmission
and can only be serviced by removing the valve body
assembly. The electrical connector extends through
the transmission case (Fig. 249

(1) Disconnect the TRS connector.
(2) Remove valve body assembly from vehicle. (OOPS)!
(3) Remove the manual shaft seal (Fig. 250).
(5) Slide TRS off of manual valve shaft.
(1) Install the TRS to the manual shaft. Make sure
TRS locating pin rests in manual valve bore slot.
(2) Install the TRS/manual shaft retaining screw
and torque to 5 N·m (45 in. lbs.) torque.
(3) Install the manual shaft seal.
(4) Install valve body to the transmission.

my points! given above. facts.
check fuses first.we check the voltages second at p/n sense pins.check for corrosion on the 3 pins related,even re-seat all connectors and pray it goes away cleaning all 3 with real electrical conn spray.does this help?

btw , you never asked a question?
1: how can I fix this.?
2: who, can? (any ASE shop on earth)
3: what parts do I need? (a TRS)
4: what are the steps. (posted)
so i guessed, 1 and 3 and 4.

Smell the fluid. If it smells like gasoline you have a gas leak. If it smells like antifreeze you could have a hose or a anti freeze cooler line leaking. Or could be a water pump leaking and running along the frame under the car. Get a flash light and crawl under neath the vehicle and see where the fluid is coming from.

first check the firing order plug wires, then check the timing , not sure of this but check the timing by lossening the distributor while enging is running and manually rotate the distrubutor to adjust timing, by ear w/o a timing light. maybe need to be retarded or advance a bit. check auto maintence manual for firing order.

This is a broad spectrum of possibilities. I would first start with a simple approach of insuring good gas.
When these symptoms occur, get a bottle of fuel additive and add to your tank. Possibly you have some condensation issues. This could be just the ticket... I hope so. Good luck.

fuel system or ECU/sensor issue

1997 Jeep... | Answered on Jul 01, 2015

similar problems: After 20min cool down jeep was bucking/lurching that I traced to bad o2 sensor in exhaust manifold (which you've replaced is seems). The second problem of bucking/lurching, backfiring under certain driving conditions I traced to the battery sliding into the computer wiring harness, disrupting sensor input / output signals. I cured this problem by placing a 1" spacer on rear battery clamp, pushing the battery forward. Been years and no return of problem.

change the spark plugs and wires

1997 Jeep... | Answered on Jul 01, 2015

try new spark parts yet, called a tuneup.
on this old, wires and spark plugs.

i pay no attention to the CEL, i scan them all
you do know that the CEL does not come on for all fails.
and in canada, lots more. missing.
scan it , and do so when it messes up in WIN.

my guess,no full tuneup for last decade.
