Rpms drop too low and it stalls*


do you have the clutch in whan you stop cause some cars when you stop while its still in gear it will put friction on the clutch pressure plate and it will stall


Ya I have the clutch in. The car will run for five seconds and before it can be put in gear it will stall

I had a fiero that would do this,when it has lees than a half a tank of gas,tank is so small,when you park on hill,it would lose fuel from the fuel pump,this would explain why it only doe,s on hill.

if it dies when u let the clutch out try reving it some manual cars have a tendancy to n ot have the idle up enough so it will shake and die


I tried revving it and it still would do the same thing
