I would want to check the fuel pressure, although battery voltage should also be checked. If it isn't charging, or just barely charging, that's about how long it would take to draw that new battery down low. Cleaning the EGR valve would also be a good idea. If it is closing on some carbon, that would act like a vacuum leak, and could cause a stall, as well as hard to start. But the fuel pressure needs to be up where it belongs.
Before you spend anymore money try something simple. Take the center wire off of your distributor cap, touch something grounded to the frame, then have some one crank it over. It wont start but it will and should spark. If it doesn't then try a diffrent piece of metal touch the frame of the car. If you still get nothing you know theres a problem which could mean a couple things like your coil is bad or could be the spark plug wires. Also try to change your fuel filter. If it still wont start change the catalytic converter as that should be the reason it has no power.
Please do accept the solution and revert for further assistance.
