Sort of indicates the electrical distribution needs attention. Good that you replaced the battery and alternator but you still have an issue with some power loss, like wiggling wires restores connectivity. Start at the battery, use a wire brush, and some water mixed with baking soda if you see any green or powdery corrosion to dip your battery cable ends in. Usually the wire brush cleans well enough, you want all connections shiny metal to metal contact. Follow both cables and the splices or pigtails to where they connect, like that alternate positive post. The more you can remove, clean, and retighten all the connections you can, the more likely you wont have such gremlins reappear.

Have you checked for vaccume leaks?
You've got lots of parts in there, Has the problem been the reason you have replaced all of those, or did it come up while doing some of the repairs?

Sounds like your car has jumped time. Which means the timing belt has worn teeth. Another possibility is you have an intqke valve not sealing or stuck open. Either way it wouldnt run or run extremly rough

Also do not let tank run low because fuel in tank keeps in tank pump cool. This is why the pump is in the tank.
