96 tracker has no power

I have a 96 geo tracker 4 door i just bought cheep. it has a problim that is just out there. when you get it to start it has no power what so ever .after you let it idle a while and warm up up it almost runs fine with just a little hesatation. but as soon as you put it in gear nothing
you can't get it too go over 5 mph. the guy said it had this problim when he bought it so he want and put in a new motor in it. the one he put in was out of a 97 Suzuki 2 door the junk yard told said it was the same. i've changes the mass air flow,the map sen checked the fuel pre 40 pounds and tried a new computer.

Wow, you replaced everthing, wow that was $$
any mech and $200 would net an answer.
those changes were used parts im sure.

1:engine compression on mine is 180 psi all 4.
i have same exact car if it hits 180 ,the motor is fine, even 150)
2: clogged up injectors for sitting too long and the gas is bad ,which fouls the whole fuel system.
filter tank and injectors.

BTW motor is running lean.
unplug the maf and the ecu will mimic a virtual maf. can car will run fine, a tad rich.
if it dont run fine there are no injections.

a full scan tools works on all 96s and can tell you lots of facts.
Is the CEL lamp out running,

You didn't indicate that the starter turns over slow--that would be a strong indication of a bad battery, but if so, check your battery. If your battery is more than three years old, replace it. If the battery is good and you still have problems it could be a starter problem.
