Try having the electronic ignition control module checked...Also timing belt may have jumped a notch..they will stretch over time and skip a notch or two throwing it out of time.

Missing fire

a bad injector can cause a miss, you can listen to each injector with a stethoscope. It should make a rapid clicking sound. If it makes a deep thumping sound it is likely bad. also an intake leak can cause a miss at idle. also an EGR valve partially open can cause miss at idle. I always check cylinder compression when replacing plugs or coils for a miss. You need quality tech to check for above items.

Are you sure that the plug gap is correct? and did you use the recommended plug when you changed them? You might also try running a can of sea foam thru with a tank of fuel to make sure your injectors are not dirty. Also check your fuel pressure.

Have 1996 grand cherokee lardo runs fine but has a miss changed plugs and wires still misses

check the vacuum hoses, and did you check the inside of your distributor cap for cracks or arcing. also spray some w - d 40 lightly around the mounting of the throttle body , in order to see if the gasket is leaking, you will have to start the vehicle, then while it is missing, then spray the w - d 40, and see if the engine levels out, if so , you have found a vacuum leak at the throttle body mounting.
