1992 jeep cherokee spits and sputters and will not hardly run sometimes, but at other times it sems to run fine.

You need to do all the basic tune-up things: plugs, wires, cap and rotor, fuel and air filter.

My 1990 ford ranger when the motor is cold it runs fine but when it warms up it spits and sputters so bad it barley runs

Check the egr valve. Then the O2 sensor(s). When it warms up it goes into "closed loop" using the O2 sensors..if bad it will run lean or rich or hunt for both.

Use a can of carburettor cleaner lightly sprayed around suspect areas with the engine running.It will stop the engine as soon as you spray at affected area.It should point you to any leak.try not to spray intoair box intake.Is the air box lid securely fastened and air filter clean?
