It might be a problem with your transmission because not all mx6's stall when you put it in drive or reverse.
Because reverse is a lower ratio gear than drive and puts less load on the engine.
u got problems take it to a mechanic
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"
you should check the fuel ingestion
How will you back out of your driveway or parking 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.
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?
You have to take it to a shop because you cant get to it and you need certain tools.
could possibly be the torque convertor. wiil it go if you give it some gas going from neutral to reverse or does it still stall ? check shift linkage for pinching a wire when shifted , good luck !
I really doubt it's the tranny making your car stall, it's either carburetor problems or the idle is set too low.
your fuel pump can be broken or your fuel injectors...
