Hesitates on acceleration after driving for a while. Also at freeway speed going over bumps it hesitates. And also it stalls when turning left at low speed. It idles fine, starts fine. Does not rev, only loses power. Does not throw any codes.
Thinking it’s the TPS or fuel pump. But I am mostly lost.
Anyone have this issue and get it fixed?

Hello, I'm Danny.

The first thing you should try is to test the fuel pressure.It sounds like you might have a weak or failing fuel pump.If you don't have access to a fuel pressure tester most auto parts stores have a tool loaner program and can rent you one.Here is a tutorial showing what is involved to test:

The fuel pressure specifications for your vehicle is with Key on engine off is 55-62 p.s.i. Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.

Hello again.

Yes, seems your pressure is below specification.That would definitely cause stalling and hesitation.Here is a tutorial showing what is involved for an in-tank fuel pump replacement:
