Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee
Im driving and the engine acts like it wants to cut off but it doesnt it cranks fine
Check the radial runout on the distributor shaft, by pulling the cap and rotor and physically moving the shaft back and forth and side to side there should be a minimal amount of play (radial runout) in the shaft. Check a Chilton for the exact spec. The drive gear could be worn and worst case the cam gear. "To much play will affect the indexing (timing) and cause faulty signals to the PCM." (power control module)

If your air filter and fuel filter are recent and your spark plugs are not more than 3yrs, then I'd try replacing the distributor cap(if present) and spark plug cables, or at least clean the connections first and see what happens. EGR valve is another possibility.
