Put in a mass air flow sensor, put in a engine gasket in April 2016. Now car is stalling, check engine light is on fuel gauge not working, trip counter not working, engine stalls and surges rpms move up and down while I am on gas pedal or coasting

With the work that was just done, I would scan the computer for codes. This will give you a diagnostic starting point. If the problem began after the work, I would look for un-metered air. (a.k.a. vacuum leak)
