did you do a tune up when you replaced the distributor if not check all the contacts and rotor button on the cap might be a bad connection! what sensor do you think is bad?

funny thing is that it would run great and then suddenly run like crap. then if I open it up and race around it would run better again but this last time out it ran like crap and didn't change. codes include cam sensor, o2 sensor, injector code, TPS code etc etc.
I'm gonna erase it's memory and start over. I'll check all connections and make sure there isn't a shorted wire somewhere or corrosion in the dist cap etc.
It's done a lot of sitting lately. I'll be using this for wheeling and the CJ only for racing.

no, in the situations that we are shifting it was more important not overshifting and mission gears while bouncing all over the place.
