HOW CAN I FIX MY CAR THAT CANNOT MAINTAIN SPEED WHEN IT REACH 2100 RPM.

I have to floor the gas to escape the hiccups and then let's say at 70 mph it will start to lose speed. I constantly step on the accelator to keep up with the flow of traffic. Otherwise, if I let the speed to come down, it start********. Beyond 2100 rpm, it is okay.
Please help as I already change mostly everything like Air Mass Flow sensor, spark plugs, wires. Fuel pump, fuel injectors, ignition coil, air filter and fuel filter.

Do you have a check engine light?

Could be caused by one of the following below

Oxygen sensor.
Catalytic converter.
Fuel injectors dirty/sticking.
Mass airflow sensor/Airflow meter.
Throttle position sensor.
Crankshaft position sensor
Knock sensor
Manifold absolute pressure sensor.
EGR Valve
Fuel pressure regulator leaking or defective fuel pump.
Fuel contamination.
Foul/defective spark plugs.
Open spark plug wires.
Ignition coil/Coil packs defective.
Incorrect ignition timing.
Cap and rotor.

Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing.
