If it is only those two cylinders and everything else is ruled out it can be a bad ECM. The power train computer can fail in that manner.

Are there any codes or other problems other than that?

Then it is probably the ecm, I would recommend a diagnostic to confirm before you replace the computer. The dealer or a good shop might be able to confirm it is the ecm, but in some cases you just have to try a known good one to find out.
