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"
Its not in reverse gear.
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.
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.
because there is no further GEAR in reverse.
the car goes back
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.
I'm no mechanic, BUT that happened on my Taurus when the fuel pump was not functioning properly. Best to take it in.
Shift linkages not put in the correct spots.
You have a serious transmission problem. Have it checked ASAP...
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.
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
Tranny is shot.The reverse gear in your transmission had burned out
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.
yes it can
model t ford
Select reverse gear.
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.
It goes into reverse gear, nothing else.
