Replace the crank sensor.
The torque on the engine in drive could be pulling on the harness.

1990 jeep Cherokee spits and sputters and back fires when trying to start smells like there is plenty of fuel, changed the cap and rotor to no avail, it will run but acts like its misfiring badly

That could be the timing belt.. have you ever replaced it? (Some Cherokees use a timing chain.) If it is the belt, the more you crank it over, the more valves you can bend or break.

2004 grand cherokee 4.0l one day it will run fine the next day it runs rough rich and when i step on the gas the engine cuts out and spits and sputters

When the "spits and sputters" happen are you in low rpm? Can you "by-pass" the sputtering by accelerating? Has your gas mileage suffered?

1995 Jeep grand cherokee is missing while running. When it is under a heavy load (driving fast) it runs fine. When idleing and slow driving it spits and sputters.

I have the same problem on my 95 grand cherokee laredo. Sometimes it starts out fine and after about 10 miles it starts spitting and sputtering. Then after a while it seems to clean out and run fine again for a little while. Then other times it starts out spitting and sputtering at the begining. I changed the fuel filter and that was not it. It is a 4.0L 6cyc. Any Ideas?

  1. There is water, sand, or rust in the tank that is choking the fuel filter.
  2. Then clean the throttlebody if problem persist.
  3. In the most extreme cases the air intake and or filter maybe blocked but this is rare.

Sputtering at idle and reverse??

Leaky EGR. Faulty plugs or wires. Vacuum leak at intake manifold or hose connections. With enginre running, wiggle all vacuum lines around and look for loose damaged or disconnected hoses,and listen for a hissing.

Do you have access to a multimeter and familiar with how to use it? Take a few minutes and remove connector at TP sensor, spray it off & inside with electrical cleaner, add some dielectric grease and see if it helps at all. You should find TP sensor on opposite side of throttle linkage on throttle body at front.
