You may have got a bad crank sensor, if you friend has a lab scope have him check the pattern for both the sensors, I had assimilate problem with the first set of sensors in my Grand Cherokee with your engine, second set it work flawlessly. Oh and use Jeep parts, aftermarkets just don't seem to work as they should.

Yeah my check engine light is on and the gauge light is on so I was wondering if I should get a tune-up or what


I checked my plugs at 98000 miles and they were only slightly worn but I put in double platinum plugs at that time and they were still in there when I sold it at???? Well I can't remember but it was a lot, but not over 200K

Stick with the Jeep/Mopar parts for the crank and cam sensors. They court more, but they are better quality. A knock off part is just that. Many are bad right out of the packaging. Sad but true. Don't purchase the foreign junk when buying electronics unless its a stereo.
