Default truck just died while driving

It is a 1992 ford f250 5.8L efi. I have recently changed the cap and rotor but not the spark plugs. Being that the cap and rotor were so corroded I think that the spark plugs are probably the reason it has been lacking power, cutting out, and just today it just shut off. I wiggled all the plugs on cap and the plugs then it started again but was running like crap and sounded like it was just gonna die. I drove it home and checked the fuses and none of them looked bad. Please help, any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!

this would not be a fuse issue
