M42 lack of power

So after I replaced the water pump thermostat thermostat seal thermostat housing gasket fan clutch and pouring in new antifreeze as I drained all of the old coolant from the radiator and the block my check engine light came on and as I drive the car it feels like I'm lacking power anybody have an idea as to why this might be?
