Why does it take longer and longer for a 1999 Grand Cherokee to shift into OD?

Cars & Vehicles

The transmission is starting to go, its probably got a failing pump, or the computer is acting out for some reason, but the transmission is electronically controlled, it see's signals from various sensors on the transmission and decides when to go into overdrive, temperature and pressure determine when it will use OD. temp to low it will wait in 3rd longer to let the trans warm up some more, and then the pressure builds to a certain level and lets it shift. if its taking longer and longer... more than likely its just worn out, worn out trans has looser clearance tolerances so there's more space for the fluid to leak past and lower the overall line pressure, if the line pressure isn't high enough the computer wont let it shift.
