    Thanks.It's been 2and a half years since tune up and 3 since changing plugs,etc.I suspected gas only because other people who have bought gas at this notoriously "cheap" gas station also complained of problems.

    What if they are new plugs, timing belt, water pump, radiator, boots, intake valve, outer belts, and hoses to the radiator?

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?

you have an engine miss, any time the check engine light starts flashing the engine is missing, should be an easy fix sounds like either a bad spark plug or a bad plug wire if you have the codes checked there should be a code telling you what cylinder is missing, but if i were you i would tune up the engine all new plugs and wires and filters......GOOD LUCK

As you have replaced all the obvious things that could cause the symptoms it may be a good idea to have a cylinder compression test done , if comes back OK i'd try a fuel addative , one that covers the catalytic convertor , as there are many sensor's involved in the fuel/exhaust system as you know , this addative will clean any residue affecting there reading's , hope this helps

check all your spark plug cables, if moisture gets in to the boots it can cause a short near any metal surface,replace all your fuel filters and run some lucas oil fuel injector cleaner and stp octane booster.those worked on my 89.and the carb or throttle body might need to be cleaned with some spray cleaner,there are 2 different 1's /1 for carbs and 1 for throttle bodies.
