If i am every driving my car and i push and hold the clutch in, whenever i'm approaching a stop light or sign, the car will shut off. If i shift into neutral the car will shut off. And this happens everytime i either press and hold the clutch or shift into neutral.

    Have your idle speed control checked. Do you ever get any Check Engine or Service Engine Soon Lights coming on? If so, have the codes checked because that will be a huge help.

    They have come on before and i was told mass air flow system which i got replaced...and it helped for a couple weeks then the problem came back so i returned the part as defective and got a new one and the problem returned again after a couple more weeks. now the check engine light doesn't come on. i had my idle air control motor cleaned and that helped for a couple weeks as well, but the problem has returned again. so now i'm thinking i have to get the idle air control motor or valve replaced but i don't know which one and they are both expensive
