why does the car stall when i put it in reverse?
Can you please provide more details?
i can only think transmission
Is this an automatic or manual transmission? The strangest possibility, but one I have seen on several older vehicles, is the alternator going out. Basically, the symptoms are first-few-starts of the day, the vehicle starts fine, but stalls when put in drive or reverse. Reason being, the brushes in the alternator have worn and the alternator is no longer putting out enough amperage to keep the vehicle alive. I had a 1984 Lincoln Town Car that tested fine for charge in park -- but engage drive or reverse, and the charging output dropped to something like 6-9 volts from 14-16 in neutral. A new alternator cured the problem.
