Default unplug the MAF sensor?

hello i have an '93 oldsmobile cutlass ciera s 3.3 litre with about 160,000 on it. after experiencing some engine hesitation when first accelerating i put new plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter, sending unit, O2 sensor, vacume lines, cleaned injectors, it got to the point that the car wouldn't move without unplugging the mass airflow sensor. New MAF didn't fix the problem, the car is still undriveable without the maf sensor unplugged. has anyone experienced this problem/ have a solution? plus the obd doesn't set off a code untill the maf is unplugged. i don't think it has map sensor, maybe the tps? Anything would help thanks.

In previous posts you said that you replaced the mass air flow sensor and other parts, did you check the resistance at the maf connector?
