Default Poor accelleration?

Been having trouble with my daughters 04 Cruiser for the last two months. It's been stalling and the only code I would get is the O2 sensor codes. Changed the sensors, but it still would stall. Changed the fuel pump, because there was a fluctuation in pressure. The O2 sensor lights are still coming on but it doesn't stall, just bogs down when you step on it, seems to idle fine. If you accelleration real slow it will pick up speed. Thinking that there is a problem with the injectors. Runs great until the light comes on, one it comes on it starts acting up.

Have you checked for a clogged cat?

Codes right now are P0032 and P0038. I did have a couple of injector codes about two weeks ago. I think they were: P0201 Injector 1 Control Circuit and
P0203 Injector 3 Control Circuit.


I'm assuming it's not the cat since it runs great until the "Check Ingine" light comes on. But, if I get time I'll check it.
