P0281 and P0284

Truck drove fine last night and idled fine this morning but halfway home it started idling rough as hell and had a lot of power loss but no white smoke. Got home then check codes and got those 2 so I couldn't find definite answers so I came here for help. What should I check or do?

Sounds like you could have one or two injectors going out. Take it to a shop and have them do a contribution test to verify.
