V-6, 5-Speed Falling on face during clutch release

I have a 2006 V-6 with 5-speed trans and for some reason each time I start out in 1st, power dies and the engine wants to stall out unless I slip the clutch at 1500 - 2000 rpm. Is this normal for these Mustangs? I have only had this one for a month or so and was hoping I would get used to it but not liken it so far. I have owned many manual transmission cars and this is the first to act this way.
Thanks for the input.......
Pete

Definitely not normal. The only time power gets cut and feels like it will stall is when you hit the rev limiter around 6000 rpm.

Fuel filter probably has never been changed but if it were a problem I would think I would get power surge or lose when getting on it and that's not happening. Pleanty of power in the upper band. Has 29k miles, and it does it all the time (hot or cold).

Let me get this right - Your in 1st gear and slowly release the clutch pedal it kicks back, clutters, falls dead? Are you giving it any throttle as your releasing/engaging?

I do that sometimes. Seems like it just doesn't get enough fuel. It's usually when I'm feeling a little lazy. What you describe sounds like mine.

I've also heard of this thing called throttle lag. Our cars are throttle by wire and not a cable. Maybe it might have something to do with that. Mine has always done what you described since I first got it and I'm the original owner. I don't worry about. I give it enough gas, it will spin the tires.

Thanks, I like your view on this!

Your kidding right?
Perhaps you should read my origional thread again only this time slower. Where does it state that the pedal kicks back and clutters? Did I ask for instruction on how to drive a car with a manual transmission?
I looked at your profile and although you have a really nice car it states that it is an automatic. Do you realize that automatics do not have a pressure clutch? You probably wouldn't be experiencing the problem I have with your automatic.
