Car doesn't have power when trying to take off

Hi, have a 2003 Ford Focus 2.0L SOHC. When trying to take off it has no power, barely moves. Have changed fuel pump, fuel filter, new 02 sensors (as it keeps throwing codes p0135 and P0141), new catalytic converter, new throttle position sensor, new input shaft sensor on the transmission. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Just keep blindly replacing parts. You'll hit the right one eventually.

OR

Bring it to a shop and let someone with some training and tools find the problem. The $80-$100 for this would have saved you money prior to now. After, who knows. But the way you're just replacing stuff on a guess, you'll probably save money by having a professional fix the car.

No not really.
MPG going up is good from a money savings, but how much did he just spend on the gains? How long till the break even point?

Millions of cars out there with parts much older that are running just fine. "Preventative maintenance" is more about less weight than anything. All that excess cash is bad on your hips.
