Slow at first...

I just got my Jeep back on the road about a month ago...was having crank sensor problems...boy was that a hassle...but yesterday on my way back from Tulsa, I stopped on the interstate and when I went to leave I noticed that once it was in drive it didn't seem like it wanted to take off as fast as it usually does...kinda creeps a little...and I remember when I had the solenoid replaced that it acted like this only it had a tendency to kick into 2nd gear...and skipped literally made the Jeep jump...however, this time it isn't just seems like it isn't switching gears though...Do you all think it could be the solenoid again or am I being paranoid...

Check you transmission fluid level first. Make sure the jeep is at running temp and in Neutral with the parking brake applied. Check it a few times to get an accurate reading.
