Pesky check engine light...

Light came on a few days ago saying bad cam positioning sensor. Replaced that and the crank sensor. Jeep ran good for a few more days, then started running rough again and the light came back on. This time it said cylinder misfire on 2 and 3. The next day, the code went off by itself again and the Jeep is back to normal. Any ideas? I'm chasing my tail
