4.7L

2000 Dodge Dakota

I have a 2000 Dodge Dakota 4.7L, stick shift, with less than 35,000 miles. It has been a nightmare (new tranny, new power window drives, the list goes on and on.). The current problem seems to be stemming from the computer - maybe? The check engine light is on and the engine runs rough - rough idle and 'bucking/vibrating' while driving. The dealership found nothing wrong with the computer and 'reset' it. One mechanic ran diagnostics and found that the injectors were misfiring. He tested the injectors - they were fine and concluded that the computer has issues. A second mechanic also concluded that the computer has issues. He is about to put a 5th second-hand computer in the truck. This can't just be a computer issue at this point, can it? I can understand getting 1 or 2 bad second-hand computers, but this is ridiculous.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions and help!
