99 running like 💩

I have a 99SH with about 170k miles. It's orettt much stock except the exhaust. Lately it's been running bad but only does it randomly. Out of nowhere it'll start running real sluggish I can step on the gas and it just won't go then all of a sudden it'll take off. When it's doing this when I come to a stop it'll die if I don't keep giving it gas. The exhaust smells like the cars dumping to much fuel. Today I was on the highway and dropped into 4th gear to accelerate and the RPMs dropped significantly then jumped back up. After that I couldn't get the car over 60 mph and if I went up to 3000 RPMs it'd start jerking and just wouldn't go anymore. Not sure where to start. Recently I had the timing belt n water pump replaced. I changed the plugs, wires,cap and rotor. Cleaned the EGR Valve and all the ports. Cleaned the IACV and replaced the PCV valve. Appreciate any help on this one

Actually ended up being my crankshaft censor. Had a shop Do my timing belt recently and they said a bolt came out and broke the censor and damaged the belt so they're replacing it all for free. Luckily for me they're honest about it.
