Either a relay or a sensor. If check engine light is on, then the best thing to do is to have a diagnostic scan done to read the engine codes. Many part stores will do it for free. This will pinpoint the exact problem location

When i push clutch in it makes a grinding noise.Hard to shift into first.When i come to a stop it acts like it wants to stall

Sounds like the clutch release plate or release bearing are damage or disintegrated. Because one or both of these parts are damaged the clutch does not properly disengage which will result in crunching gear changes at slow speed and also clutch dragging at lights (wanting to stall) etc.

You'll need to split the transmission from the engine block to investigate.

Brake lights are permanently on

switch above pedal may be stuck. Pull connectors off the switch to see if lights go out. If they do, replace the switch. If not, try pulling the stop light relay out of it's socket in the engine compartment relay box. If the lights go out but the relay doesn't click, replace the relay. Let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa

You've got to do the obvious things, look at your spark plug wires, if you see what looks like chalky residue they are arcing replace them and your plugs. Check all vacume lines for leaks, and make sure your air filter is clean

Xj40 1990 sov, brakes rock solid, clicking sound under dfootwell

If the pedal is rock hard with the engine running it is most likely the accumulator and the click noise is coming from the relay under the dash driver side is most likely the main Yellow relay
