If it is completely clogged yes it cause vehicle to stall because its not getting any air.

Agree that it is an easy repair to try. But, it sounds more like a fuel hunger problem: plugged injectors/fuel filter/fuel pump/bad gasoline.

Could also be a plugged catalytic converter. When it stalls you need to see if it has proper fuel pressure or if it losing spark.
