Car has a hard time starting

Like its starving for gas. When it does start idle fluctuates and when accelerating it dies. Ive changed the fuel pump and filter.

I just changed pcv valve. Car idles good, but when driving, after it shifts starts to lose power, when I let off pedal, gains power again. No codes now.

Do you
have the same problem?
