The car hardly accelerates the the more throttle given the slower it goes. I have replaced the egr and fuel filter and checked for vacuum leaks, which I didn't find, the car has a slight miss at idle and smell like it is runnin rich

Check the exhaust system for clogging.
Did you test the fuel pressure?
Is the Malfunction Indicator Light showing?

Check the Throttle Position Sensor. Test if it is operating within range.
