Colorado won't run Sign In

I have just bought a 2004 2.8l colorado got a deal on it for $800 but it shows reduced power! I've read countless things on it and had codes read! So far I have cleaned throttle body and mass air flow sensor. I have also replaced camshaft position solenoid and crankshaft position too! So help please! I'm def no mechanic but I can do most replacements myself and and not completely ignorant on working on them. But I am open to all and any suggestions at this time I'm hoping it's nothing major wrong

You need to have it scanned, so you can write down which trouble code number(s) are being stored. Post them in here. If you have no experience troubleshooting electrical or drive-ability problems using a scan tool and/or DVOM, you might want to have a technician take a look at it since you saved a bunch of money getting it so cheap and after putting all those parts on it playing swaptronics.

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.
