Default Stalling and pickup issues

I went the the nearest AutoZone and they had said that it was the Head Gasket going out as to why my car would start shaking when I would press more in the gas. It has gotten to the point that I would sometimes have to press the pedal all the way down to get some for of speed. When I out it in reverse, it stalls out, as well as the RPM's fluctuate when at idle. I let the engine warm up a bit before I drive it and it slightly works. What could be some possible issues? It's a Volvo s40 1.9L Turbocharged. I love this car so much, and I just don't want to let it just die the way it has. I put a new Fuel Filter, new cabin Air filter, new Oil filter in, new spark plugs and new air filter. I'm starting cheap. Also, it went from 30 MPG to 20 MPG very fast. It sucks gas worse than a heavy duty diesel now.

Please help and thank you.
