87 YJ Auto transmission Problems

Okay, i've been searching for a couple of days on this issue and can't really find any information on my problem so i had to post. I have recently acquired an 87 YJ with a 4.2 and a 3 speed auto transmission, the biggest problem i'm having is i have to let off the gas in order for the transmission to shift from 2nd to third, it will not shift out of second unless i let off the throttle, has anyone ever experienced this? The other minor problem with it is it cranks great and runs on the first try, but if i shut it off it's hard to start back up, i'm thinking it's the diaphram in the fuel pump, but not a hundred percent sure, i can live with the cranking issue for now but need to get the tranny fixed, it has maybe 4"-6" lift shackles on it and clears 35x12.50 tires, but no body lift and no spring lift. Thanks for any help.
