It sounds like your engine is dying or almost dying when you let off the gas. If you have any engine lights on you should have them checked out. Also check all your vacuum hoses and lines and connections. Open the hood when it's running and listen for air hissing.
Have you checked the fuel filter? It may be time for a change. In a Manual transmission when it dies any time as long as your still rolling at a decent rate of speed you should be able to push the clutch in to start the engine back on.
first engine light is on a reason it has a code stored needs to be read,2.sounds like it needs throttle body cleaning,and3.if clutch is hard means master clutch cyl is bad if hydraulic and if manual cable is worn.
Probably a TCC (torque converter clutch) problem. When applied, this clutch makes a direct connection between the the engine crankshaft and transmission input shaft (just like a manual clutch). If it doesn't release, then it's just like coming to a stop but not pushing in the clutch with a manual transmission.
Several possibilities for the problem exist within either the electronic or hydraulic circuits, but quite often it's the TCC solenoid itself. If that's the case, then it's a relatively easy and inexpensive repair. Check for codes in the computer and go from there.

Got a service engine soon light illuminated on the instrument panel? If so, look for codes related to the torque converter clutch. Sounds like a bad TCC Solenoid or problem within that circuit. If the torque converter clutch does not release in lower gear ranges then it's just like letting the clutch pedal out on a manual transmission - there is a direct lock-up between the transmission and engine and thus the engine dies.
It sounds like the clutch is not disengaging the engine from the tranny.
Just as the truck would if you'd come to a stop and not step on the clutch, the engine would die.
There should be an adjustment for this. However if you have many miles on the pressure plate / throw out bearings, it maybe time for a new set.
