Could be bad throttle position sensor, or bad crankshaft sensor. You may also have a bad ICM (Ignition Control Module) If not giving any error codes, I would guess the crankshaft sensor. You said it was hesitating and running rough. Sounds like a spark issue which would be the crank sensor.

Common issue with old 2.8 engine was bad injectors and ECM cal.chip.
