Dakota 8-cyl

I purchased a 2005 Dodge Dakota and 6 months after my purchase the vehicles idler was jumping from 1 to 3 and then vehicle dies. It continues to this. I have bringing my truck in to be serviced sense 11-2005 and 2 months ago I was told that there was no fix for the issue. I have been battling with Chrysler for the lemon law, and they state my vehicle has been repaired. To this date no repair, vehicle died in the middle of intersection and was re-ended.
