any ideas...

my truck died on me like someone turned the key off,and i was on the interstate.it would not start. well i had it towed home and ive check all the most comon things with out taking it in. so my dad has the same truck an a friend told me to take the idm out of his plug it in to mine and see if would start. it started right up but ran real rough an would barley rev up. no smoke either but smelled rich. does anybody have any ideas.. before the idm went out when i was driving home that day, never had a problem it ran great.
its a 2000 modle. thanks
