Its a 1986 5 speed 900T. Intermittently it's like the engine stops turning while underway. The car wants to stop rolling. By reflex I stomp the clutch pedal, and the engine stays alive. When I reengage the clutch, it coughs and stutters and shudders. Feeding gas it will run roughly and tolerate a slight bit of load. Maybe. In a few seconds it clears up and I have power in motion again.
What faults am I looking for?
