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.
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.
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"
it will drive but when in reverse it wont move
because your a failure and you obviously can't drive!
I really doubt it's the tranny making your car stall, it's either carburetor problems or the idle is set too low.
if you have a cracked distributor cap then water would get inside it and make your car stall.
because if you stop immediately then the car will stall.
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.
I'm no mechanic, BUT that happened on my Taurus when the fuel pump was not functioning properly. Best to take it in.
transmission is gone.
Check your transmission fluid.
Get new transmission

what is the problem when the car will not go in drive or reverse? and the transmission fluid is still full
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.
