reverse and it dies.

saturn sc2, 94, 132k. Runs pretty good, but started getting the weirdest problem. when backing out of the drive way the engine dies when the clutch is depressed to put in 1st gear.

A few weeks ago lost the oil cap and sprayed oil all over engine compartment. soaked down with engine cleaner and washed off. Started getting the problem, figured it was water related. Only did this for 2 days and then stopped. Then today backed into the street and put it in 1st gear, let off clutch and nothing. turned radio off and low and behold the engine had died. Started back up and no problems.

any clues? thoughts or babbleism?

Something may have gotten wet with the oil. You might want to run it at night and see if you hear anything arcing (like plug wires that get wet if they are old).
