Default 1991 Toyota Camry Runs BUT Won't Go

1991 Toyota Camry Runs... Bought new Filter Pump, Cleaned Filter injector,
new spark plug, but when pressing gas engine dies... Earlier today right
after put in spark plug car finally would go but after a short drive around
block it died out... had to push car back home... pushed car while it was
running but on Neutral... and while pushing after a few yard engine died...
did not even press gas... what is going on? By the way, before I had the
key replaced car was doing great.... until replaced key engine keeps dying..
.. could it be the key or something else?

PS. I forgot to mention that the Fuel Regulator has been taken care of too...

It runs but when gas is put on it dies, I will bet its electrical, the
coil , a common camry issue

Just a complete guess obviously, - wondering if you may have exhaust
restriction,like an internally collapsed muffler or catalytic converter
creating excessive back pressure such that the car would idle but not
run under load.
To check you could attach a vacuum gauge to the intake manifold and
start the engine. You should see good vacuum at idle. If you can get
the engine to run while parked, raise the engine speed and the vacuum
should stay constant at a given engine speed. If the vacuum begins to
drop, could be a sign there's pressure building in the exhaust not
letting it escape and killing the engine.
