When it stalls in reverse does it try to move rear ward excessive?

If you hold the rpms up around 1200 then shift does it still stall?

No it does not move rear ward excessive.
Yes it still stalls
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 11 months ago

Can you get the vehicle on jack stands to see if it still stalls in reverse when going from N to R without the brake applied?

If you roll rear ward on a hill and select R from N does it stall?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
