Q: Car sputters and cuts off on 2002 Mazda Protege

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
The car sputters and cuts off when I am backing up,or stopping and starting. I can press the accelerator and the car doesn't move for a few seconds then catches. I just had the oxygen & air flow sensor,air hose replaced for 900.00 and the problem persist. Any ideas?
