    Try changing your fuel filter its probably blocked,ideally you should change your fuel filter every service.
    hope this helps! :o )

    Checking the fuel filter is only one answer, check your spark plugs as well clean them with 100 grit sandpaper re-gap to specs., check your distributor and rotor and one last thing check your ground wire from your battery is bolted tightly.

    It sounds like a fuel problem..You should get it checked out.Make sure the spark plugs and H,T leeds are in good order.

    If it is a high mileage car, sounds like the catalytic converter is getting clogged. Has the exhaust changed sound lately?

    98 and up – air flow meter – borrow one from someone who has your same car (if you are able) and test. All other cars, check the ignition coil and ignition system / distributor (not sure what year vehicle you have). Not hard to fix this problem.

    Is it a diesel or gas golf? If it is a diesel most likely the diesel fuel filter. In the gas side it may be the fuel but most likely AFM(air flow meter) needs cleaning or replacing. Just my two pence.
