Timing issue?

I have a 2000 Cherokee with a 4.0 that won't run. Sometimes it acts like the timing is too advanced, sometimes too far retarded, and sometimes it fires up fine but dies after a few minutes. I've replaced the camshaft position sensor, crankshaft position sensor, ECM and timing chain all to no avail. The MAP sensor tests good. Any ideas?

Make sure all of the ground wires are good and tight.
Check your fuel pressure.
Clean the throttle body out.

Does you CEL light up? If not, then throwing sensors at the problem is a waste of money.

Remove the Idle Air Control sensor from the throttle body. Clean it with carb cleaner and 0000 steel wool. Clean out the bore it sits in also.

See what that does.

Do you know what was good about the good old days? I wasn't good, And I wasn't old!

Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....
