ENGINE STALLING WHEN PRESSING IN THE CLUTCH

Hi,

Recently replaced a faulty coil pack on the corsa. A couple of months later when pressing in the clutch to slow down the engine stalls. Happend around 1 to 2 times per trip, but got worse now and happens every time I slow down.

Coil pack was tested again and its not the coil pack (or so they tell me).
Sometimes the car will idle fine, but most time it keeps on loosing RPM and starts shaking and finally stalls.

The car has been from repair shop to repair shop for the last two months and no one can pinpoint the exact cause.

PLEASE HELP!

Thanks
Meyer

Sorry for my ignorance. But what do you mean with CEL? And the mileage is km not miles.

Does it come on any other time? If so, get codes read. Maybe do it regardless just for chance.
