ignition system trouble on 2.5 L
Im getting this strange electrical misfire while under acceleration, usually only at RPM's higher than 2500. Its not really a misfire like when you have bad wires that are shorting out. Its more severe, like all cylinders are not firing for a split second. I have replaced plugs, wires, cap and rotor. Coil is only 2 years old. Its like a cough or sputter. I also replaced the entire engine wiring harness because the original one was hacked up and shorting out. Im starting to suspect the computer is starting to go bad. Most of the time the speedometer does not work either. It is either on for an entire ignition cycle or off, it never stops or starts in the middle of an ignition cycle. Are these symptoms of a failing ECU?
92 YJ 2.5L 5 spd.

I don't really know any way to test the computer ( I bought one over the forums, replaced the new (to me) one with my stock one and it's been running fine ever since. This was on a 94 S.
