Question: Truck stalls when you push gas pedal

Ran fine one day and the next day it didn't .
It idles great, but in park you push the pedal
And it hesitates and stalls. When you put it in
Drive you can't move the truck. We cleaned
The EGR valve, changed fuel filter, and
Checked air filter. No change. Thank you
In advance. Mike

Changed the TPS and still read TPS code.
Checked voltage at TPS and it reads .8.
Replaced speed sensor and no change. Also
Transmission feel locked up in drive, but
Backs up fine.
