Maybe a clogged fuel filter. Crossed vacuum lines, poor gas?

Anytime....are you a mechanic

Thanks for the answers guys and the wires are fine, the fuels good quality and funny enough that vacuum lines are fine but I get no air flow of any kind through the egr and we cleaned that and the throttle body and at this point the codes I get is for is the neutral safety switch or the computer might be bad, it's just a giant guess game with my truck

The filter is clean as well no crud in the filter and I pulled the cat pulled out the com inside and put back on but same problem zero power when in gear
