Hi,
I have a 01 escape manual 4.0. Whenever i let the clutch out (either into first or into neutral) it stalls. If i rev it to 2 rpm and let go of the clutch it goes but if i let it go normally it stalls/shuts off.

I think it shuts off because when i let the clutch out even 1/2 inch the rpm's drop to zero. It doesn't stall like a normal stall (shaking and stuff). it just quietly stops. It kinda seems like the computer is turning it off... but idk.

It doesn't happen every time i let the clutch out but it happens every time i drive it.

If anyone has this same problem or if they think they know what it is your input is greatly appreciated!

Mahalo in advance!


p.s its not because i don't know how to drive a stick lol... i've had 5 cars and none of them were automatics.

I remember several Rangers having similar problems. An issue of a wire harness rub through comes to mind. Seems like it was down at the transmission area.

Must be a pretty old ranger.The slave cyl in inside the bell housing.But we'll skip the history lesson for now and get to the problem at hand.Considering the truck does not stall with increased RPM when letting out the clutch,I would look for something like a vacuum leak that is leaning down the mixture and not allowing the engine to handle the load at just off idle speeds.when you give it extra gas to compensate,your actually slightly richening the mixture by adding more fuel to the fire.If it were a shorted wire it would hapen everytime the clutch is released.BUT if the torque of the enginecause a rotation of the engine into a harness,this could fall into Electro's idea.
