95 ZJ Transmission Issues! HELP!!!

Hey guys this is my first time posting on here so I hope I did everything ok.

I have a 95 Grand Cherokee with the 4.0 and 42le transmission. I recently just got the vehicle and it runs and drives great, other than not going into overdrive. But I think that is because of the ON/OFF button on the dash. It has worked before.
Most of the time when I drive it, starting from a stand still in D, it has no power and feels like it doesn't shift at all, nor go into overdrive. Occasionally the transmission will go through all the gears and overdrive just like it is meant to be. I usually just drop it into M2 to have better pickup, M1 is like M2 in my jeep. But just last night it wont back up. I can put it in reverse, the reverse lights come on, but its like it strains to back up, just sits there and revs to 2000 rpms. all forward gears have worked fine today, as long as i **** down to M2 and then to D. This is my first jeep so Please help me figure out whats wrong and what I can do to figure it out. Thanks!!

your could try replacing the trans filter and the fluid. it should look red on the stick, not brown or black. mine is having issues as well with lockup. also had some shifting issues that have been going away sense i did a filter and fluid change.

While u are in there doing the trans filter change out the governor pressure solenoid they are fairly cheap and tend to go bad causing it to not shift I had to replace mine last spring because it wouldn't shift into 3rd I believe until I let of the gas and go back on it. Not exactly what u got going on but while ur there it wouldn't hurt.
