Default pulled a chevy with the help of two f150s and now mine limping away.

sorry guys i havent been on in a long time. but i had a very eventful day. neighbors back yard was a mud pit and needed his chevy outta there, so i chained up to it... failed horribly 4 wheel low just trying to get my self out. (ran fine) then we hooked up a 4.6 f150 to me on dry pavement to get me out and the chevy (what a site that was) and i finished pulling it out while the whole time the chevy's emergency brake was on.

so i park it to rest after that ordeal then 2 hours later i run into town. i noticed its hesitates very badly from about 1300 up i dont run past 3000 rpms i baby this truck, nor did it hit the 3000 mark when pulling the truck.
now when i headed to town it wasnt nearly as bad as it was coming back home.

its got 140,000 maybe 2 hundred and all i did was install a computer and plugs.

what are your suggestions? possibly did it jump a on the timing gear or is my coil on the verge of failure? 2 weeks prior i did a cylinder leak down/running compression test and vacuum testing on this truck and the results were very good.

i dont think its a internal issue because it runs perfectly fine idiling no skipped beats and no MIL flash codes. havent checked fuel pressure but it has a new pump and filter. so timing or the coil is what im likeing to single it down to.

what do you guys think?

THanks Aaron

Soon as I read, two f-150's pulling 1 chevy, I"m thinkin Parking brake. Do error code scans & check timing. Next time tell him to just bury it where is died.
