The question is:
2 cylinders are not working, no spark, car run with no power, rattle because of that.
Thing have done:
1- new sparks
2- new wires
3- new ingnition coil
4- clean egr valve
5- no oil in the sparks
6-compression is good
7-no funny sound from the engine
8- new transmission fluid
9- check all harness and wire and hose (ok)
If you are a Pro. Advise?
Do you
have the same problem?

I don't remenber the code, but after I got those code numbers I call Dodge dealer and also check online and it was the same diagnostic about the ignition coil and the egr valve, which I replaced. And the result was the same. The cyliners are the two of middle. About the Dis cap. This car doesn't have it has the ignition coil.

O.K. Look at figure and state cylinder number. So when plug wire is pulled and grounded to block no spark? Right Do plugs get wet with fuel?

No, it does not get wet with fuel. When I unplug the wire from the ignition coil and put close to a ground. NOT SPARK at all, and I was told cylinders works in pair.
All the rest of the spark shut spark. No fuel or oil in the spark plugs.
