Default Need help

Hello
im currently in a bind with my 02 dodge ram with a 4.7 I was driving back into to town and it was running fine, then about a quarter of the way back it just started running horribly, the rpms are shaky and it will not do over 40 mph. After bringing it to my local auto shop for review and help, we came up with the fuel pressure is low and that I had cylinder 3,5,7 misfiring. I fixed the fuel pump which regulated the fuel pressure, it still was not wanting to start on the initial turn of the key. I had to turn the key and hold it for about 30 seconds before the motor would respond. since then I have fixed cylinders 3 and 7 but still no luck on cylinder 5 its still misfiring and bad. Could that be the main reason my trucks not running properly? or should I look at maybe a blown head gasket? im not sure where to start looking again.. any help would be greatly appreciated.
Collin.

Sounds to me like it kicked a rocker arm out from under the cam on #5. If you already know the coil pack and plug are good, pull a valve cover and check or perform a compression test.
