Hard to say without knowing more about your car, like year ,make and model.This could be a transmission problem, possibly the torque converter lock up solenoid. ALSO - check for proper fluid level, clean tranny filter and proper idle speed.

What causes an automatic transmission not to idle?

If you mean each time you engage car in any gear forward or reverse & it immediately stalls - you have a bad torque converter.

Is it safe to drive a car if reverse not working?

How would you get your car in and out of your driveway? How would you get out of a parking stall unless you pulled through and there was no curb or car blocking you? It is not uncommon to find yourself in a tight area where all you can do is reverse to get out while driving. I would say it is not safe.


Why does your truck jerk when you change gears to reverse?

In automatic transmissions, there is constant pressure form the pump at idle. This means that when going from Neutral to reverse, that pressure is suddenly slammed onto the drive train of the vehicle, if the engine doesn't stall. This gives the slight jerk/movement.
