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.

my frist guess would be a fuel filter/pump issue.get the codes run on the computer.is the engine light on?
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.
