Car Stalling Problems

Why would the RPMs drop rapidly to zero and the car stall when you press the clutch?

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

It would stall out at lights because when you need to shift you have to let up on the clutch easy when your changing gears; therefore you will stall out if you let the clutch go too fast.

A worn out clutch release bearing would cause a whining sound when you put your foot on the clutch.

A problem in the fuel line could cause it to stall. On a stick shift, letting off the clutch too soon would cause the vehicle to stall.

I would check clutch plate, if faulty renew, the clutch might need adjusting.
