I hooked my truck up to my computer and it said that my 5th and 7th cylinder is misfiring. My trucks runs kind of rough and wants to die when they misfire. Is there any place to get new ones?

Since cylinders 5 & 7 are next to each other you may have a blown head gasket. To confirm, compression test those two cylinders. If they both test low, that's what it is. If you have coil packs, most likely the one for cylinders 5 & 7 is failing. If that's the case, replace all four. If one coil pack is failing, the others are soon to follow. HTH. -Jim
