Engine dying while driving

So I was headed to work this morning and my 99 f-250 7.3L (bone stock) started missing. The only way I can think of how to describe it was like a hard shift from the tranny. But the motor would lose power and then it would run fine. It did that prolly 5 times in 15 minutes then the ses light come on and started doin it more on the way back home. Just changed the cps, fuel pump, and fuel filter. The #30 fuse is loose and I have to wiggle it to get it to crank some times. Didn't have time to really mess with it this mornin but I'm open to any suggestions and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Ya know,,, that SES light is there for a reason

A scan would pull-up a stored code and get you going in the right direction....

Oh no, that code is stored in your computer for retrieval now. Problem is, you gotta have the right scanner to retrieve it The ones the Auto Parts stores, or most Free or even Generic/OBDII scanners out there don't work on our trucks so, you have to find the right guys...
