Hi, im having problems with my falcon, where i stop at lights and it feel like its going to stall or turn off. Then when i accelerate, the car is not in gear and is free and the rpm goes up, but then i release the accelerator and it would kick into gear. Also when i start braking, the car is like not in gear or something

Thanks for your help

maybe your ISC (idle speed controller) it sits on top of your throttle body unplug it and see if it still does it you may need to fiddle with the screw that adjusts your throttle body valve

IF it was me firstly i would get a gearbox service and then if it does again look at the ISC clean that with some carby cleaner and then if it persists after that get a diagnostic.
