Vehicle moves while not in gear and will stall if I let off the clutch while still in neutral.

My car has 156000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hi Paul. Thanks for contacting us tonight. We’re a bit confused by your question. If the vehicle stalls when you let the clutch out, and the vehicle is hard to shift into gears, it’s likely that your clutch system needs to be replaced. There are so many individual parts that make up the clutch system, so it’s very difficult to pinpoint the root issue without completing an onsite inspection. However, this could be a fuel system problem. Without knowing more details about what’s going on, it’s really hard for us to answer your question accurately.
