2.5 Liter motor Problems

Ok I have a 1995ish 2.5 liter motor 2WD(not quite sure on the year just yet)

But the lady says the jeep ran fine, then it dropped two cylinders. According to a repair shop. And it ran like crap. I know before she had a problem with the distributor, where it wouldnt crank some days. I found that to be the distributor cap was cracked. But the jeep just recently had a tune up. I dont see any codes, Any causes that you guys can think of, off the top of your heads.

Thanks

So, it sounds like replacing the distributor cap/rotor didn't solve the problem.

I'd say check the common sensors...CPS, TPS, MAP?
