car dies only in reverse
I'd check for a battery/ground wire or wiring harness being pinched possibly due to broken engine mount/s to start with. I've had a few that had bad engine mounts amd when the engine tories forward it would pull on loose ground wires , battery cables and 2 or 3 that actually had chafed the wiring harness and caused no starts dieing at stop lights etc.
