Why would your 2001 dodge 2500 diesel die when you put it into reverse but doesn't if you go quickly to drive?

mostlikely the torque convertor is shot or tranny dodge trannys have lots of trouble when you put them in to reverse (only auto trannys) they tend to put such a strain on the motor that it dies from lack of fuel
