well this is my first post on this site, just got into jeeps, bought myself a 95 2 door sport. My problem is that it has a misfire at idle, especially when its cold. My check engine light comes on once in a while after driving for like 15 min. I did the self diagnostic check and came up with : Code 43 Peak primary circuit current not achieved with maximum dwell time. Misfire detected in one or more cylinders 1 thru 6. So it confirms my suspicion about misfire, i just changed plugs and wires the other day. By primary circuit ,would they be referring to the coil ?? Or am I way off track, any help or experience with the same problem would be great.

The text of the code points you in the right direction. "Peak primary coil current not achieved with max dwell time". Since you've changed the wires and plugs (which is a good first step) and you still have the misfire, the most likely culprit is the coil.
