It was overheated in the past and "cooked" a head gasket 4.0 6cyl Replace it! Have the coolant tested with a gas analyzer or chemical check.

Head gasket is likely not going out it is likely gone. Get it properly diagnosed and repaired.

    I have a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Has a hard time starting. When it is started it misses when you give it gas. It backfires and splutters around 1500 to 2500 rpm. What can I do to fix it?
