sounds like the problem i had when i took out my tranny get a 1/2 inch wrench and flat head screwdriver. taqke the flathead and take the air filter out then the 1/2 inch and jump up and reach to the back of the engine and the fire wall on passenger side you should feel the tranny fill tube right behind it is the crank position sensor two bolts. mine had bed wires.

I fail to see how a faulty CKP sensor can cause a bog. A bog occurs when too much air and not enough fuel enters the cylinders. Start by checking fuel pressure and volume. After that, look into the TPS as a possible culprit.

Could be a plugged catalytic converter...An easy check is to pull the upstream (before the cat) 02 sensor and run it. If it runs better the cat is clogged, if not , well at least nothing was damaged testing.
