As I said already it is a 1996 isuzu hombre, it has a 2.2 liter engine with a manual tranny I haven't tried anything but checked electrical an vacuum connections on the engine
So if I understand correct, idling in neutral at home. You can press the clutch to the floor and the engine will die?
no while coming to a stoplight push clutch petal engine dies
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX it has nothing to do with the manual trans, clutch nor pedal sensors. The engine rpm is dropping faster than the IAC valve can recover for. Usually in this case just getting the engine running its best will prevent this and allow the engine to recover. I suggest we run 2 bottles of STP in a tank of fuel then flog the intake with sea foam, clean the throttle body and MAF sensor. See if the concern is still there after 50 miles of usage.
