When turning one wheel it is normal that the other side going the other way, the differential is causing that.

When putting it on the ground the wheels are spinning?

If so then it is your clutch, check the springs, the shoes and bearings.

The stalling can be a lot of things....to rich of a setting on the motor,clutch shoes burned and not grabbing the bell.

Roelof already answered it... There should be no reason other than CLUTCH as to why the car will stop when placed on the ground. This means that your wheels MUST be spinning when you start it. The clutch will be partially or fully engaged and you need to readjust the gap or springs to free it up. It may be bearings seized or similar. Take a picture of the Engine and the Clutch and we nay be able to point out some details but this has nothing to do with tuning.

If I push the car forward is it suppose to go forward or not move at all?

You arent helping your own cause. But we are helpful and patient, to a point! Also, best take these questions to the Rookie Thread!

With engine stalled, and clutch locked/seized/stuck open/engaged. NO the car will not move unless it turns over the engine.

Remove the engine, remove the clutch and inspect! The clutch needs to spin freely in order for the car to idle.


You could just ignore everything we are saying and throw the car in a forward motion and not stop, but this will eventually damage the engine and car as you will be engine braking as well, not good for internals and transmission.

A good answer is only possible with the right information with your question. As you have never aswered the question if the wheels are spinning of the ground at idle now you are not telling what your car does:

In all the time you are asking a lot you could have checked the clutch, really, it is a common thing it breakes down.....

I did check the clutch and loosened it that is why I asked is the wheels suppose to move when I push the car forward while it is completely switched off before it could not move now it can.
