Wj Loss of power

My '99 feels like it loses power when i accelerate. It'll switch to second then you can feel where the power should be and it'll sound like it's about to stall out. Almost like when you take your foot too far off the clutch of a manual transmission without enough gas. Any help?

Check your tail pipe to see if its plugged up. Mine was and I barely had anything coming out of the tip.

This. Do the key on-off-on-off-on technique and the cluster will display your codes.

I've had it checked for the codes multiple times. Nothing. Could it be from my cv axles?
