Hey,

So the other day I started my 2.4L SX manual sedan in what would have been -15 degree weather. The car started fine no problem, but the windows were rather frosty and so I let the car idle for five minutes. After thsi five mintues, I put the car into reverse and kept the clutch depressed. I kept my foot on the clutch and gave the car another 45 seconds to a minute with the clutch depressed to warm up a little bit more. Strangely, the car started making a strange noise and the engine would rev to 1500 rpm and drop to 500, and rev again, over and over. As this revving was occuring, the whole car would shake and vibrate, almost as if the car was stalling. When I tried to take the car out of reverse, the shifter would not disengage and I was forced to release the clutch with the car in gear, obviously stalling. I could also smell burning oil after this. I was wondering if anyone knows what the problem could be? Maybe the transmission fluid was too cold and by keeping the clutch depressed I allowed it to freeze in place?

Thanks guys, I figured the clutch wasn't fully disengaged when I depressed the pedal all the way. Stupid mistake on my part I guess, I haven't been driving very long... and my knowledge of cars is marginal at best. I'll know better for next time :)
