Back in the day, this kind of thing used to afflict certain British cars when the owner consistently started the car with the clutch depressed - the logic was that the oil had washed off the thrust washers and the force of the clutch pushing the crank forward when the t/w were "dry" caused accelerated wear. It's pretty rare to hear about this type of failure nowadays.

Do you have an extreamely stiff clutch? Do you tend to keep the clutch pedal depressed a lot?

Ive heard this is caused by running a lightened flywheel or underdriven pullies.It supposedly causes the thrust bearing to wear and the crank to "walk"

When you press your clutch in and yoru car turns off is like saying that when you turn the lights on in your room, the toilet flushes. Pushing in the clutch should have no effect at all on the engine stalling unless some really odd screwup took place.

When I installed my TRD clutch i dont recall messing wiht any wiring.

Do you have underdriven pullies or a lightweight flywheel? Just curious.
