Car wont accelerate?

Recently my head gasket blew and all of my antifreeze and oil mixed up in the radiator/head and it was all sludgy so I replaced my head gasket, timing belt, serpentine belt today, I have a huge problem with my car now. It turns on with knocks and shakes while on, I try to give it some gas when ever it passes 1600 rpms it just shuts off. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

It depends how long you've run your car like that and how much coolant got inside. If you've been driving it like that, then you can intensify the problem and should start looking into buying a new motor. You could try a fresh oil change and give it a motor flush prior to changing the oil. If the coolant stays inside it can rust out the cylinder walls and weaken the rods making them easy to bend during WOT.
