Mines just started doing that, I was having a problem with my exhaust manifold ( there was a hole in it, so big noise lol ) just had that fixed an it starts stalling everytime I press the clutch down even at high speeds funny thing is it jump starts itself when you lift the clutch again. Anyway I haven't solved it wondering if anyone had, I 'm replacing the spark plugs ( checked this morning they have quite a bit of carbon fouling on them ( & snapped one on way out so may as well change em ) changing the HT leads too so if that solves it I'll say but otherwise anyone help ? thanks

Let's make sure we're using the same terminology here. When you use the term "released", do you mean that the clutch pedal IS being depressed? (thus disengaging the clutch) This would effectively be the same as the car being in neutral.

Why does your car stall when you depress the clutch when stopping?

If your car runs fine cruising, then coming to a stop (perhaps at an off-ramp) you press the clutch, let off the gas, and the car stalls, then most likely, you have a vacuum leak from your intake manifold or low fuel pressure. This is dependent on the vehicle, of course. More information would have been more helpful in answering the question.

I would start by checking to see if your operator presence switch is still working properly. Located under the seat, this switch is designed to shut the tractor down if the operator were to fall off the tractor suddenly. The clutch on your tractor would bypass that switch until the clutch was let out.

Why would your car make a loud whining noise that disappears when you press the clutch?

It would sound like the throw out bearing is bad.. That is usually replaced with the clutch and pressure plate. The throw out bearing applies pressure to the pressure plate and releases the clutch disc. When not applied, the bearing spins freely, and a noise would indicate a dry bearing.
