Default Stalling Issue

My 96 Hardbody has developed an issue where it will stall when the clutch is pressed in or its put into neutral after running highway speeds and the engine is warmed up. Does anybody have any clues what it can be. Thereís been no work done to it recently and itís throwing a P0500 code. Also it doesnít do it if Iím running the AC. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Check for vacuum leaks. Not just from the vacuum lines, but also the gasket mating surfaces between the throttle body and intake manifold as well as the cylinder head.

What would be the best easiest way to go about checking for vacuum leaks?

Use a couple cans of carb cleaner to spray around all these areas. Saturate the places. You may also want to clean the idle air control on the side of the throttle body.

A bit safer ... is a smoke-tester. Read on-line and see Youtube about the "paint can" versions.


Also do a basic tune-up anyway, e.g., air filter, plugs, ...
