There are several reasons that a car may stall only in reverse, the best way to narrow down the issue is to use a diagnostic tool. The diagnostic tool will show which sensors on the transmission may be malfunctioning enough to stall the engine.

Because reverse is a lower ratio gear than drive and puts less load on the engine.

It depends on the gearing of the car. If you are in the highest gear and 40mph in that gear is under the idle rpm of that car than you will stall.

If you mean each time you engage car in any gear forward or reverse & it immediately stalls - you have a bad torque converter. Start engine, put foot on brake, put car in NEUTRAL, if it DOES NOT stall, but it does stall if you repeat this test when you put car in drive or reverse = bad torque converter - It's called a "stall test"

check the idle speed with the car in gear, if it has a tac on the dash it should idle in gear at about 700 rpm if its too low the car will vibrate or stall.

Travelling to slow in a high gear, so clutch in and lower the gear.

because there is no further GEAR in reverse.

A car might stall when shifting from park to reverse if the idle is set too low. It is also possible that the engine stalls because it is not fully warmed up before shifting from park to reverse.

I'm no mechanic, BUT that happened on my Taurus when the fuel pump was not functioning properly. Best to take it in.

Sometimes the torquconverter can fail causing the engin to stall. In reverse it lock in full torqu. In fwd gears it slips. This is only one idea.

Tranny is shot.The reverse gear in your transmission had burned out

Manual transmission only: Probably broke your reverse gear or grind up the gear to much and it won't go into gear. Could need a new clutch or thrust bearing does it crunch trying to get it into gear if yes then its probably the clutch

Check your transmission fluid level and also if the gear chamber is not well greased then it will make them stick causing the vehicle to stall.

This happened to me on a 1986 cutlass 2.5. A wire was shorting out going to the map sensor and only did it in reverse. The bracket on the alternator had rubbed a hole and only grounded when the motor moved, when placed in reverse. I fixed it temporary with electrical tape.

It is not possible unless you are driving a very very old car. The reverse gear is mechanically blocked by a synchronizer to prevent exactly this kind of thing.

There is no drive in a standard transmission car. In most cases you will have reverse, neutral, 1st gear, 2nd gear, 3rd gear, 4th gear, and 5th gear.

User Avatar

Put the car into reverse gear first when you try to get out of that parking place.

User Avatar

A problem in the fuel line could cause it to stall. On a stick shift, letting off the clutch too soon would cause the vehicle to stall.

User Avatar

Yes, You just have to select reverse gear before letting go the clutch.

User Avatar

I put into drive or try reverse and theshifter won't go into gear.

User Avatar

Automatic or manual trans? What am I missing here? Explain! If it is stuck in 3rd gear then it is obvious that it can't go in reverse.
