Check the fuel rail pressure, should be around 40-60 psi. If the pressure is significantly lower, then replace the fuel filter. If that doesn't increase the pressure you may have a defective fuel pump. If the fuel rail pressure is okay, then I would check every sensor that adjusts the air/fuel ratio. Instead of wasting money replacing sensor after sensor, it might be wise to invest in a OBD II code reader, one that displays graphs. This tool allows you to monitor the sensors on the vehicle and see which ones aren't outputting in a certain range. I would guess either the MAF sensor or an Oxygen sensor.
