Question Asked: What would cause a shift problem from 2nd to drive only when trans is cold

this only happens if it sits for long enough to completely cool, like overnight or 2-3hrs. the RPMs continue to climb 4000-4500 and 40-50 MPH, without abusing it I let it slowly wind out and it shifts. After this first take off it doesn't do it. Even if I manually go through the gears it still won't shift until it desides to, the RPM and MPH vary so its not linked to that. The fluid level looks good. is there an additive that might help reduce or eliminate this issue.
Question Asked: what will cause low or no coolant in upper hose & heater hoses. no outside leak

new to me jeep. It is skipping and bogging down when excelerating and now has started overheating and has no coolant in both heater hoses and the thermostat housing is bone dry. I don't see an external leak anywhere. there is a hose T in heater hose, with engine just started I have steam or vaporized antifreeze coming out when I opened cap to see if coolant was flowing. upper hose gets rock hard after short drive 5mi. or less. codes show cylinder 2 missfire.
