No reverse means you need tranny work. Not related to the engine killing. Do what your expertise enables you. Begin cleaning the throttle body and IAC and see if it will stay running. Check the fuel pressure at the rail.

Idle Air Control Valve. It should be located on top of the engine connected to the throttle body. Has an electrical connection on it. Follow the black round duct from the air filter to where it connects on the throttle body. Should be only a few inches past where the rubber meets the body. Clean the throttle body and IAC with throttle body cleaner, not carb cleaner.
