Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I believe it's the 7.5a fuse labeled ENG that's blowing? This fuse powers the ECM, transmission range sensor, the input, output and vehicle speed sensors. If the fuse blows only when put into reverse then the problem is most likely either the range sensor or the circuit may be shorting to ground when the powertrain moves when put into gear. Try unplugging the range sensor and see if the fuse stops blowing.
