Ok you say you have fuel but what is the pressure at rails should be about 38 pounds, did you ohm out the injectors they should be anywhere from 14.2 to 14.4 ohms and when you crank her you should around 5 volts to each. Which jeeps with high miles the chain could stretch and jump a tooth. The compression should be about 130 to 145.

Sorry it's been a,while now since my first question. So it is a throttle body and you can see the fuel pulse when cranked. Still haven't checked compression. I thought about the timing jumping a cog. But no way to adjust time since it is computer controled. When it stop running it really spit and sputtered and backfired then nothing. I changed the coil because the spark I was getting g looked a little orange. New coIL better looking spark but still no run.

I have a 1994 Jeep Wrangler that gets spark one min and the next min it don't I had is start and try to drive it and it would shut off and not start up again
