Had the clutch replaced car starts find but will shut off
I had the clutch and axel replaced when I got the car back I could tell the idle was a little off. The car seems to shut off when I am slowing down or starting up. Once I am going it doesn't shut off. This happens about 3-4 times per day. They have checked the computer and replaced the idle sensor it didn't fix it.

NUMEROUS POSSIBLE CAUSES! Does the Check Engine light come ON when this happens? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there.

Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. Or one of the CV joints is detached from the gear box. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).
Remove the gas cap,and then remove the return fuel line off the back of the throttle body.Now take a air hose and blow in the line you removed to make sure it is not clogged up,you should be able to blow back threw the tank easy with compressed air.If you are able to,then replace the fuel pressure regulator on top of the throttle body.
does it return to idle when at 900, this is programmed to shut off fuel injectors when car is pushing engine to save you fuel for when going down a hill, u push clutch and a signal tells it u have which returns back to idle.
