a bit and then all of a sudden I go to press in the Gas pedal and theres nothing....it has

in between, I have replaced the following, Crank sensor, ignition coil, throttle position
sensor, distributor cap and rotor, plugs and wires, but still it does this.....when I go to
step on the Gas it bogs down almost like its being suffocated, and then when i let go
of the pedal it will idle but rough, I have also put in a new fuel pump and cleared off the
cat...Im stumped
