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?

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.

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.

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

Almost any aircraft egine will stall if ingesting ash instead of clean air. Clean air is essential to an engine's performance

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"

There are various reasons why your car would almost stall when idling. In most cases, this might be an indication of the engine lacking power or capacity due to the failure of the pistons. You should contact a mechanic to diagnose the problem.

your engine will stall. When you try to restart the engine, it will stutter and stall again.

There are several reasons an engine may stall while driving, here are three.The fuel tank is empty and the engine is starved of fuel.Not enough power to climb a hill causing a stall.Faulty or damp electronics on a petrol engine can also cause a stall.

Change your transmission oil it happen to me . And have your mechanic check the transmission you might have metal shavings in the transmission which is really bad.

Your Mercury Cougar might stall in reverse because of a problem with a bad crank sensor. This problem could also be due to the crank sensor wires which are damaged or not wired correctly.

It is quite simple. The wheel probably had little to do with the engine stopping. The cause was probably the changing of gears, ex: drive to reverse, which stalled the engine. This rarely occurs, 1: 100,000, but does happen sometimes. It is not something to usually worry about. This stall was most probably conincidental, caused by the shift.

This is a safety feature that polaris has on all their vehicles. It is to ensure that you will not achieve high speed in reverse as it is very dangerous. You must find the "reverse override" button. While you are in reverse, hold down the button and you will be able to go full blast in reverse and engine will run normal in reverse.

If the oil is low in your car, it can eventually cause your car to stall and not start. It can also kill your engine.

The thermostat control engine temperature. If it fails the engine can run hot or cold - that would happen long before over-heating caused the engine to stall.

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.

No, but it is still not good to run an engine on low oil, the car will not stall, but it is good to replace the oil as soon as possible.

if the engine isn't reved enough it will stall

An engine usually has a higher idle speed when the ac is running. If the high speed idle does not operate then the ac will cause the engine to stall.

The stall of an aircraft can occur in two ways: 1. Wing stall and 2. Engine stall. 1. Wing stall is when the angle of attack (AOA) of the aircraft is too high (the angle between the airflow and the longitudinal axis of the aircraft). The optimum angle is 4ยฐ. Stall usually occurs at 15ยฐ. Stall occurs because the air flowing over a wing is insufficient to produce the pressure difference to produce the lift required. So in a wing stall, the weight of the aircraft is greater than the lift of the aircraft. 2. Engine stall occurs when the forward air speed of the aircrft is insufficient for the combustion of the fuel to take place. Ideal ratio is 14:1 (oxygen:fuel). If the ratio falls to much then the air becomes turbulent and causes the engine to 'choke'. An engine stall, if not corrected, will lead to a wing stall as the thrust required to produce the lift is insufficient, therefore the weight is the leading force.
