Default Pt has no power.

Sitting at idle, idles smooth.
WOT nothing. let off gas about half way and car will pick up slowly.
When at higher speeds. it has a hick up. but it will go, down shift up shift.
seem to max speed out at around 85.
but even if hot or cold when I stop car and try to take off again. zero get up and go.

2 weeks ago I drove across town no issues. about hour drive.
on way home about 2 minutes from house. I stop at store to get candy for kids.
Come out and it took me almost 2 blocks to get to 30 miles an hour.

I replaced all sensor on intake. TPS been replace, bypassed cat, bypassed o2 sensors. egr bypassed. new coil, new plugs, new wires, still no power. did idle fuel pressure test and it was 58psi

Been googling like crazy and nada.

Is there a way to see lower timing mark without disassembling car to check if I jumped time?

any other ideas on things to check.

Car is 01 base model Cruiser.
Automatic.
180 thousand miles.
trans replaced at 100 and checked when trans module went out and it checked clear about 6 months ago.

Have you ever replaced the timing belt? Was supposed to be done around 100,000 miles.

Yes it was replaced at 100. I know it is close to needing it again but don't wanna do it if that not the problem. Hate to replace that and still have this problem.

Problems that let you drive normal one minute and not the next are extremely hard to diagnose on the Internet. You've replaced a lot of good parts and not solved it. Does the engine light come on at any time. That would give yo a fault code to help diagnose the problem.

Death of a second time belt? I've never heard of that before. Usually the second belt, if a quality brand, will outlive most cars. I feel you pain over this one.
