Need help truck is running funny

Truck is runny funny, need help!!
I was moving my truck and all of sudden it had no power and the check engine light came on, my truck was running great all day and now it idle's funny and I barley made up my drive way to park it. The EGT's are higher than usual when idling (~410*). What could be the problem? And thanks everybody that help. oh and I just put fuel in my truck.

Think you just answered your own question. May be water in the fuel, lots of contaminants ,dirt, grit, etc. now the filter is plugged. First place I'd check is the fuel filter and bowl for grunge.
