Good morning,

This transmission is typically pretty stout and problem free so there aren't many experts that have seen failures with them. Do you know which trouble codes the vehicle is showing?

I I’d at one point but don’t now
Transmission Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Master Mechanic replied 8 months ago

I'm looking over the internal diagrams on this transmission and the only thing I can find that might make it stall in reverse only would be a stuck TCC solenoid. We really need to know which codes you are seeing to get an idea what might be going on.

I’m looking through my book and I actually found a few of the codes

Those aren't transmission related. They could cause a stall, but normally it would be in any gear and not just reverse. I'm wondering if maybe this isn't a transmission problem. If you unplug the connector at the MAF sensor can you see any signs of corrosion or damage?
