What kind of engine and transmission? Could be a faulty Idle Air Control if injected or a need for idle speed adjustment for a carburated engine. If the transmission has a locking torque converter, it may be stuck in locked mode instead of waiting for the proper high gear and speed conditions.

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"

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.
