trans issue?

I have 97 zj and it now seems it is starting in 2nd gear. It starts very slow even when the gas peddle is on the floor. I know that all zjs trans's are on borrowed time but I manually shifted it to first and was going good so idk if it could be a shifting silinoid or something like that? Hope there's a simple fix. Thanks for reading

It may be starting in 3rd gear rather than 2nd. This could be caused by no power to the transmission. Look in the fuse box under the hood and find the transmission relay. Swap it out with the horn or intermittent wiper relay and see if that helps. Also try reseating the plug on top of the trans housing above shift linkage.
