If the truck seems to be running ok, you should be able to make it home alright. Depending of course how far home is. As soon as possible, I would advise you to have a diagnostic check ran to see what is happening. Possibly an oxygen sensor ........also check your gas cap and make sure it is on tight and not leaking. Go ahead and go to a good shop for the diagnostic. They will probably charge a mimimul fee for this but it will be worth it. Most times a good mechanic will offer some tips that might take care of the problem. You can get free diagnostic tests done at some of the auto parts stores but remember, you get what you pay for. They are in the business of selling parts, not repairing cars.

Hmmm. And no check engine light? Maybe it
What year is your F150? I had a similar problem on my 1999, and it was a coil. It took a while for an engine to pop up. But you replaced "wires", so you have an older truck w/o COP type coils?
did u have a check engine elight? had you just recently gased up?, u may have had some water in the fuel, i would have a Autozone parts store test the system for trouble codes, tell them u need an OBD 2 test run, it is free, if anything is failing it should have set a code in the cars computer.
check firing order that you put the wires on right then 1 at a time pluck the wires off and replace them when you do this each one it will make the motor shake a bit more, keep checking till you pluck on the wire that shows no change in the running condition and check that wire and plug to see witch one is bad
Does your engine turn over?When you say your upper hose blew off To me it meant your engine ran hot.You put the hose back on and filled the truck with water.So you drove it to the shop?Did you have to tow the truck after this happened?I don' know what to say! It seems like you have a blown head gasket,or you blew your engine,I need more info to help you.
the OD light flashing indicates that the transmission control module has observed a fault. Take the car to a local aftermarket parts place and get the codes pulled (typically free) this will send you in the right direction regarding a repair.
If you check the connection of the battery .
if you hear a cliking noise. and lights inside weak.
Is mean the battery is descharged or not good.
Try giving jumpstart cables. or with other battery.
Really I guess is a battery problem.
If the vehicle start. check if the Alternator is Charging.
I hope this could be a good point to start your diagnostic.
