2001 Roadking Engine Misfire.

I had ridden bike for 50 miles was running great. I stopped at a store for a drink then bike misfired when I tried to start it. The bike misfires real bad at idle and will die. If I keep it keep the RPMs up it will keep running but misfires bad. The bike had a major tune up less than 500 miles ago. New plugs and plug wires.

2001 Jeep grand cherokee doesn't shift out of second once engine gets warm.

2001 no engine stated. sad.
welcome to computer shifted gear box.
its called a TCM
it does all shifting
so scan the PCM and see why
you cant fix modern cars lacking a scan tool

the engine is misfiring, has 50 causes.
it not the transmission
transmissions can only shift up if the engine makes full power.
it's not making full power, fix the engine, EFI
scan it. ok?

we have posted misfire posts here 100s of time's in fact its endless..
short list.
full tuneup done.
engine gets to 180f and not running cold all the time, scan it to see that. (data scans)

ECT reads 180f.? good or above. and holds
ECT reads low but thermal gun shows say 180f
oops ECT is bad.

no DTC errors stored?, I bet there are.
4.0L coil pack bad?
sparks are new you said.
fuel pressure way too high.?

to scan it , drive to driving cycles.
many errors are not reported with just one drive cycle.
Misfire, errors, DTC P030x , takes 2 full driving cycles , cold to hot engine, and more rules, read misfire, monitor rules in SM.

The engine light starts flashing

that means the EFI system detects gross misfiring
the flashing part means, if you read the opr guide, or SM
that its my damage the CAT converter, due to overheating, it.
it says, there, drive easy to service shop.

the lamp also means and proves the errors
are there stored in the ECU memory called DTC errors.

but if you keep doing driving cycles, they can clear , causes this evidence to erase.
fools many folks this auto clear features.

owning a real scan tool avoids all this , dancing about.

All I am getting from your discription, is that you
have a code & a misfire ,you have yet to diagnose.

Except for replacing the wires, that should last the life
of the car,your doing okey

You now are embarking on throwing parts at it,
not diagnosing.

I can't tell you how to continue,as I don't know
if have any test equip or skills required.

You may have a bad ignition module or other

Again,test,don't install 1 part,unless something
tests bad.

It almost sounds like you have a bad crank position sensor. Is the check engine light still on? Do you know what the codes are, if any? I see where it told you about the coils/misfire, but no other codes were stored?
