Question: What is making my car stall/jump when accelerating?

After the engine warms up my car will start to stall or jump when pressing the gas, whether im going 10 mph or 60 mph. I also heard some clicking noises coming from the area where the gas and brake pedals are as well as a very loud "pop" sound when pressing gas to try to pick up speed because it was stalling so much.

If it only happens when warm it may also be related to the engine management temp sensor
