I had a 92 ford that did the exact same thing,the engine light was on it came up has EGR valve,replaced it and it was back to normal.

Stalls when I shift in reverse and start to back up. Usually idle feels like it kicks up then stalls

I'm having this same problem. Any help would be great. Thanks

This is going to sound stupid but I have a 1993 e350 ford club wagon that I had this problem with. My transmission leaked. I checked the fluid level and it showed fluid between the hash marks. So I never added fluid. One day I added 1qt. And the fluid level never moved. I added a second at. Still no movement. I added about half of a third qt. And the level finally started to move. In total I added 2 and 3/4 qt. To the transmission. Even thow it may show normal level on your dip stick your transmission may be low on fluid. After adding the fluid I stopped having the problem with shifting to reverse killing the engine. This was the only semton that I was low on fluid. The transmission shifted fine drive ability was fine. The only thing was it killed the engine when I shifted to reverse.
