    Well, my first thought is:

    Is the car dying from the loss of oil pressure, OR is the oil pressure falling off because the car is dying.
    I think the latter is more likely.

    Will the car run and idle fine in neutral?
    It's just when you push the clutch?
    How about when you push the clutch to change gears?

    Duh!
    First thing I should have said is check the oil!
    If the oil level is very low, when you slow, and the oil moves forward, the pickup could be uncovered.
    When the oil flow is stopped, the lifters collapse, and the engine can't run.
