    Okay i know this isnt tacoma related but i thought someone could help me on here. so I installed a new clutch, flywheel, throw out bearing, etc. in my principals honda civic in my auto class. after it was all put back together me and my auto teacher took if for a test drive. It idles fine when you initially start it but after were driving down the street and push in the clutch in to change gear it either falls to very low rpm's or dies completely. It starts right back up after and it changes gear fine. I dont get what could be wrong, because it drives great and idles but after pushing the clutch in it just dies. Any ideas?

    How do you even start it then? Does it have a clutch start cancel or something?

    Hmm didnt think about the air box hoses. We pulled the old flywheel and got a new one on. Yeah we aligned it so thats good. I dont think it would be the crank sensor because it was fine before the clutch install, but ill check all the vacuum lines on monday. ;)

    Oops haha its a 96? Ek sedan with a d16

    Haha no it drives fine but it just stalls out sometimes. we could just crank it back over and itd start right back up

    Sorry, I overlooked your comment about pushing the clutch. The torque converter clutch is part of an automatic transmission. Again, it not properly disengaging on deceleration could cause the symptoms you describe. This obviously does not apply to you.

    And you don't push anything in while driving down the road...It is clear he is talking about a manual transmission.
