The Check Engine light wasn't on until TODAY! It just came on, so I don't think that was the cause. I think that is just another symptom.
The problem seems to be worse when the A/C is running. I'm in Texas so that's just about all the time. When I push in the clutch to coast to a stop the engine races at about 3K RPM until I come almost a complete stop. Then it slows to idle speed.
Another thing. When the A/C is on and at idle, like at a stop light, the engine surges to about 1200 RPM for a few seconds then slows to about 600 RPM (pretty slow), almost slow enough to die, for the same amount of time. It alternates back and forth unto the light changes and I start up. It doesn't do that when the A/C isn't on.
Thanks for your help on this. I'm stumped.
