2005 Nissan Sentra Questions

I change parts on my car and the light is on.

My check engine light is on.

On the highway when I press the clutch the RPMs drop straight to zero. Doesn't happen all the time. Check engine light is on but the only code I pulled was p0455. I don't believe that would cause this sort of issue. Any insight would be appreciated.
