I am sorry you are experiencing quite a rough time with your car. Before my mind, automatically thinks that it seems like a transmission problem would be incorrect advice to give. I realize you said you drive a stick shift. But, if you could help us determine what year make and model of your car that is having the problems. That could greatly help as a tool to get to the root of your vehicle's main concern of malfunctioned part.
Ford Focus and Hondas have been RECALLED, due to the similar issue you have described. I want to help you as fast as possible so please, if you don't mind, your exact year of your Vehicle, along with the Make and Model of your Vehicle.
I give my honest precise advice through what I know in my Career. In order to help you, I would need to know the answers to your type of vehicle to better benefit this situation and rather quickly.
Hope we hear back from you soon!
