Best Answer

A few more questions before I can give you a better answer -

a. does your car have fuel injection or a carburetor? (If you aren't sure: do you have to warm it up and or pump the gas to start it? If so, it's got a carburetor.)

b. Under what conditions do you have the problem? (Walk me thru a typical example - i.e. car cold/hot ... do you have trouble starting or restarting ... so forth)

c. if your car is carburated, it might be out of adjustment or dirty. If it's fuel injected, it may be as simple as dirty injectors or a small sensor bad/disconnected. You may need an engine diagnostic check.

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. 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"

I really doubt it's the tranny making your car stall, it's either carburetor problems or the idle is set too low.

Car stall in reverse gear only?

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.
