99 f250 7.3....running rough and shutting off

Well - if your SES light came on, you have codes stored. Remember that a generic code reader like the ones at AutoZone won't read the codes on a PSD. You need a high end scanner like AutoEnginuity with Ford Enhancement or SnapOn.

My first guess would be that you have a under valve cover harness that is loose. Very common on these trucks. The plug works its way loose and has intermittant connections and eventually none. Ford sells a clip that will tighten the plug, or you can do the quarter trick:
