Engine will die if you hold the clutch in with the transmission in gear after about 45 seconds. It's like it tries to engage. No leaks that I can see and the reservoir does not get low on fluid. I have bled led the system but it doesn't seem to help.

Id do new clutch plates, fibers and steel.

Also, its not the best to hold the clutch in for that long in gear, prob burning your plates up.

Yeah, joe is right

Holding the clutch in for ages with it in gear, there will always be a little bit of drag that will create heat and swell the plates and cause it to stall.

Thanks, yeah I've been wondering about that. Just bought it used and inherited this issue.
