[DML] Re: Stalling when clutch is depressed

If it is stalling when you depress the clutch pedal my guess is
something is very wrong inside the clutch. Do a visual inspection.
Look for a lot of clutch materiel debris, check the oil level in the
transmission, look for shiny metal dust, maybe have someone start the
motor and step on the clutch while you listen for any unusual noises.
I am thinking maybe the throwout bearing is gone and when you step on
the clutch (and push on the throwout bearing) it doesn't want to turn
so it puts a large drag on the motor. A large drag at idle can stall
the motor. You might have to remove the side and bottom covers, and
maybe the starter to get a good look. You will have to remove them
anyway to get the clutch and transaxle out.
