1998 Volkswagen Jetta Question: POOR ACCE;ERATION

I OWE A 1998 JETTA GLS, I AM EXPERIENCING VERY POOR ACCELERATION AND THE CAR FEELS LIKE IT IS STALLING AND WILL NT GO PASS 20 MPH. -
Answer 1
my frist guess would be a fuel filter/pump issue.get the codes run on the computer.is the engine light on? -
Comment 1
yes the engine light is on, also I was told that I need a throttle position sensor while I am waiitng for the part I use a can of throttle intake cleaner , which improved the stalling for a moment but now the problem appears to be getting worse. -
Answer 2
Possible catalytic converter failure, it fails commonly on VWs. Also MASS Air Flow Sensor fails. You can try to disconnect the sensor and see what happens. You need to get a diagnostic from a repair shop. Zee -
