Truck missing really bad

Today when i was leaving for school i made it 200 yards down the road and the truck just lost all power and was missing really bad. it barly made it back to the house. and i'm not sure were to start

when i first started it up this morning every thing seemed normal. untill it bacially fell flat on its face.

The check engine light did come on and i'm having a friend come out at 5 to pull the codes.

does any one have any idea what it is. or were i should start at. I have a bad feeling its going to be expensive.

I got the truck with 145000 miles on it and havent had any problems at all. it has 165000 on it now. any help or ideas would greatly be appriciated. beacouse its our only truck and were going to need it soon for when we start taking soy beans off.

Thanks

Wait til you get codes, then worry. May be IDM, may be CPS, maybe all kinds of things, codes, then work it.

yup. check the connection in the center of the valve cover on the valley side. if that is good, i would remove the valve cover and check that down there. mine poped off a couple weeks ago. there is a chance that it is fried as well.
