Similarly, it is asked, what happens if you keep driving with a bad clutch?
If you drive a car with a manual transmission, there will likely come a point in time when the clutch wears out or your clutch pedal breaks. Warning: Driving your car while the clutch is broken will quite likely cause further damage either to the clutch, the gearbox, the shifter, or your starter motor.
One may also ask, why does a car stall when the clutch? Stalling a car is most common in manual cars, although automatic cars can stall if there is an underlying mechanical problem, this is due to the nature of how a manual car works. When the clutch is engaged, i.e. you are in gear and your foot is off of the clutch, two discs connect the engine with the transmission.
Herein, what are the symptoms of a bad clutch?

Does stalling a stick shift hurt the car?
Stalling the car extremely frequently especially with load(passengers) can put additional stress on the transmission components but again its highly unlikely you will kill the car with stall.
