pulsating idle, lack of power????

Ill give you the whole story. Alright so my dad said water in fuel light came on all day, truck said forty miles til empty, pulled out of drive way lost fuel. Filled it up with Diesel, then started up. Then the truck started to run sluggish, Drained the water at a local job site, in the water there were floaties on top, like the fish food when sitting at the top of a fish tank. Kept running sluggish, pulled into drive way and it had a rough, pulsating idle. I then went and drove it immediately felt the lack of power and it was very quiet. any help thanks i think its a clogged injector

need to get it on a scanner and see if its got any codes , when the engine changes tone , like you said it is quieter , an icp sensor will make one do that also, i would get codes pulled and go from there
