Not a normal crank story

First off i have a 98 cherokee sport 4.0 So many problems with my cherokee. First it starts the no start issue after I drive for awhile I messed around with some fuses and relays things like that and it stopped for a couple days, then it started cutting out and stalling really bad i couldn't get over 10mph and it wouldn't shift so i swapped computers with a 99 cherokee and it ran perfect for about a month then started the no start agin i changed to tps and it stopped for a day or 2 started again then I changed the cps and cam sensor the no start issue is now fixed but it has a really tough idle after components under the good get hot runs perfect for about a 15 mile drive and pulls up and intermittent loss if cam and crank sensor the longer it runs the worse the rpms jump around and cuts out pleaseeeee helpppppp meeeee I love my xj!!!!!

Are you using genuine Jeep repair parts or crappy Chinese "Lifetime Warranty" parts ?

Are ALL of your tune parts fresh, including the coil ? Have you cleaned the Throttle Body and Idle Air Controller recently ?

How old are your O2 sensors and have you tested them for correct functioning ?

Cheap crappy "Lifetime Warranty" parts are often out of specification, or even failed, right out of the box. Many times they have a short service life before they fail. Always buy top quality replacement parts and genuine Jeep sensors. Numerous threads detail long and frustrating searches for a "problem" that ended up being cured with genuine Jeep repair parts.

Cheap parts are cheap for a reason.
