Check for a bad injector?

Is there a way to check for a bad injector? I was sitting at a stoplight and my truck started spitting and sputtering and then just died, now it sputters all the way home?

a scanner that has functional tests , reads data , etc, , need to pull codes , need to run a injector buzz test and also cylinder contribution test , it may not be injector , could be electrical issue to injector , a buzz test would help determine that , like I say , need to get a good scanner on the truck to see what your issue is

If you don't have any codes, you pretty much need to have an auto engenuity scanner or Ford IDS system to to an injector buzz test/ cylinder contribution test.

I pulled up the autoenginuity thing and it tuns 250, does that come pre programmed? Like just plug it up and it scans? Does ford run these tests? Im sure they do but not for cheap
