Not being there makes this difficult to give you anything useful, however, in reading your post, It makes me think that the clutch has little to do with the problem. Likely, the engine is either not getting enough fuel or is loosing spark. When this happens, the clutch being engaged is keeping the engine turning...when depressed, it allows it to completely stop. I would first check for proper fuel flow and pressure (filter & pump), then check ignition (crank sensor & other related ignition components) The items I've specifically named are the most common ones that fail. You should verify with individual component tests as well as code tests (larger parts houses do testing free) before replacing suspect items or repairs can get very costly even when not using a repair shop.
The tests etc are too involved to write here, but are outlined in vehicle specific manuals made by haynes, chilton etc.
If you need help on specific items, I can help you with that.
good luck!

1996 Isuzu hombre 2.2 manual trans is stuck in gear have removed the stick and put it in neutral and still stuck and stalls when clutch is let out


so , it seems the engine does start in gear, with clutch depressed.
or cranks , brakes off, and car does not move. with clutch depressed, if yes, then the clutch is not 100% seized.
we now know the trans is in neutral (could be siezed check its Gear lub levels?)

I can not decode, stuck in gear. elaborate that.
nor "
"still stuck"
the only clue here, is
"stalls when clutch is let out."

this last statement makes me presume you depressed the clutch
then turn the key to start, it started
and when you let the clutch out, the engine stalls
does it do that rear wheels (2wd mode) ? lift driving wheels off the ground.... (these proves engine not weak)
yes, transmission is sized.
no, then it is stuck in gear.

Can you tell me why my car won't start unless it is put in gear with the clutch pressed in, also it stalls until the engine is warmed up?


The vehicle is fitted with a clutch switch for safety purposes, that is why the vehicle won't start without pressing the clutch. The cause of the engine stalling might be that the cold start ignition/ timing advance does not work as it is supposed to

Clutch pedal, starter, ignition... where is the safety relay for the clutch pedal depression to allow start? 1994 Jeep YJ 4.0 this has happened twice


If you find the switch, you can temporarily jump across it, 'till you get a new one. When you go to buy it you are looking for a clutch switch.
Neutral switches are found on automatic trans vehicles. If you jump it out, be VERY careful to make sure you start in neutral with the clutch depressed as without the switch, it will start in any gear even with the clutch engaged.
