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.

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 reverse is a lower ratio gear than drive and puts less load on the engine.


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.


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.


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.


I'm no mechanic, BUT that happened on my Taurus when the fuel pump was not functioning properly. Best to take it in.


yes a bad converter will make car stall


Why would it stall or almost stall in Reverse but not in Drive? How long since it's received a tune-up and thorough check-up? How is the compression?


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"



who would buy a $1.7M car that doesn't reverse


AC runs on the battery. If the car is off and you run the AC, then start the car, it will stall.


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.


The car began to stall, so he brought it to a mechanic.He had a stall selling hats and scarves at the market.The car began to stall, so he brought it to a mechanic.He had a stall selling hats and scarves at the market.The car began to stall, so he brought it to a mechanic.He had a stall selling hats and scarves at the market.The car began to stall, so he brought it to a mechanic.He had a stall selling hats and scarves at the market.The car began to stall, so he brought it to a mechanic.He had a stall selling hats and scarves at the market.The car began to stall, so he brought it to a mechanic.He had a stall selling hats and scarves at the market.The car began to stall, so he brought it to a mechanic.He had a stall selling hats and scarves at the market.The car began to stall, so he brought it to a mechanic.He had a stall selling hats and scarves at the market.The car began to stall, so he brought it to a mechanic.He had a stall selling hats and scarves at the market.The car began to stall, so he brought it to a mechanic.He had a stall selling hats and scarves at the market.The car began to stall, so he brought it to a mechanic.He had a stall selling hats and scarves at the market.


Yes, a busted head gasket might stall your car if the gasket causes the car to overheat. This can actually blow the heads and cripple the car completely.


If the car does this every time, but is ok in forward gears, then the transmission could have an internal problem. There could also be an electronic issue. If possible, run the computer codes for any bad codes to appear.


because there is no further GEAR in reverse.


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


No, that would indicate transmission problems, is it a standard or and auto?



The most common reason for a car to stall is a lack of fuel. The gas tank could be empty or the fuel injectors. Need to be cleaned.


A bad fuel pressure regulator will cause the car to stall or not run .


The problem is probably the alternator. If the alternator fails to keep the battery charged the battery will keep the car running until it can no longer supply voltage to essential systems and the car will stall.


transmission filter not properly seated in the valve body, causing it to stall when engaging reverse gear, wouldnt have believed it if i personally hadnt experienced the exact same problem myself.
