I agree with the no spark theory....I drove my wifes caravan with #1 injector plugged...it barely ran! couldnt imagine 2 cylinders out!! Would be undriveable/or simply wouldnt run at all.

Not true. I had a coil go out, and started and drove. It protested, but it drove.

I've had 2 wires crossed (not on the same fire either) and it was driveable. It went up my driveway so a load on it is possible. However you're not gonna run even a 17 or 18 like it.. Shook a lot too.

What electronics have been added to the car since it was built? Anything at all with ignition (remote start etc)? Coil packs could be a problem but this sounds like it just started happening.

When it dies does it stumble before, or does it just shut off after running fine?

This is possible, but not in all cases. It'* dependent on which two you get crossed. It depends somewhat on where they fall in the ignition sequence. In general, MOST 2-cylinder misses won't prevent you from driving. But it won't be fun.
