I'd also suggest a dose of Sea Foam. Since you've pretty much covered the "spark" part, fuel and air are next.

The 4.7L is a real good engine if you take care it. There are DT members on here that have more than 200K and still going strong. Two of the most common engine problems are dirty Throttle Bodies and the engine getting too hot. The Dodge trucks are bad about getting an oily tar looking crap on the back of the throttle blade. There’s a ‘How To’ that shows you step by step instructions for cleaning the TB so there no need to cover it here. As for the over heating, you can do a simple test that will answer the big question; is there crack in the engine? The test is the NAPA Cylinder Head and Block Test. You take some of the antifreeze and place it in the test fluid. If the fluid turns blue, you’re not pregnant but there is a problem where exhaust gasses are entering the cooling system. If the truck passes the NAPA test, I’d do a compression and leak down test. This will tell you how tight the engine is throughout.
And here’s the different ways to reset the computer …
The first way:
1) Disconnect the Negative battery cable for two or three minutes then reconnect.
2) Start truck and let idle till it reaches operating temperature.
3) Turn truck off for 5-10 seconds.
4) Fire her up and drive her the way you want.
The second way:
1) With the key out of the ignition
2) Disconnect the Negative battery Cable.
3) Put the key in the ignition and turn it as if you where trying to the START it.
4) Release the key and leave it in the “ON” position and let it sit for 10- 15 min
5) Remove key from the ignition.
6) Re-attach the negative battery cable.
7) DO NOT TOUCH THE THROTTLE when starting the truck for the first TWO times!!!
8) Start truck and let idle till it reaches operating temperature.
9) Turn truck off for 5-10 seconds.
10) RE-START the truck but DO NOT TOUCH THE THROTTLE!
11) Let the truck return to normal idle (500-600 RPM’s)
12) Turn truck off, and then start her up and take her for a LIGHT test drive… NO WOT testing yet.
13) After driving around the block letting your computer LEARN the new air flow turn her off one last time…
14) Fire her up and drive her the way you want.
The third way:
1) Pull fuse #19 or #23 or #31 (vehicle year dependent)
2) Close door and buckle seatbelt (technically you don't have to buckle the seatbelt, but it helps to stop all unnecessary chimes)
3) Put key in ignition and turn to "on" and wait until all chimes stop (on...not start!)
4) Turn key to start and hold until you hear 2 chimes (I think it was about 15 seconds or so)
5) Turn key off
6) Re-install fuse
7) You're good to go
... and last. This is from a past DT thread:
You can do what is often called a "hard dump".
We (techs) often do this when we need to totally reset the ECU and either don't have the proper tool close by (too lazy to walk to toolbox and get it) or just are "in a hurry".
First, disconnect positive+ battery cable at the battery and ground it to the chassis. Yes, the POSITIVE CABLE.
Wait a few seconds, 30 won't kill ya.
Now reconnect the positive cable. Careful, no sparks now.
Get in the vehicle, turn ignition key to on (run) position, now depress fully and release the gas pedal 5 times to set the TPS to WOT. (Make sure the floor mats do not keep the pedal from going WFO)
Turn the key to off, wait a min, and you should have cleared everything in the ECU except for the factory programming.
The hard dump does not effect the (factory) alarm, the only thing I noticed is my radio presets, as this method came from a working Chrysler tech, I doubt if there are any negative effects.
If you start a thread, be responsible and post the final outcome.
