I thought the problem was the fuel filter, not the problem.

It is likely the transmission does it shutter at all when u get it to back up?

It is possible that when you move the selector to R that it is causing some kind of a short with the ignition switch. Open steering column and see if you have a wire worn through and shorting out.
