First gear and it still started cutting out

is starving for fuel but if you try to
accelerate it completely bogs down and
dies.this time I am not getting any fault

down and lose all power

Have you done a full inspection of the whole car engine transmission? kind of sounds like it could be your catalytic converter because they react like that makes it so your vehicle can't go anywhere when they go bad not sure, check into everything like when's the last time you did a tune up inspect your catalytic converter you might want to get it diagnosed from a professional shop you know instead of throwing parts at it could cost a lot of money without a good diagnostic.
