The reverse gear requires the most lockup pressure If the Torque converter is defective it will do exactly what your vehicle doing, they are right on there diagnostic of your vehicle , you can drive it that way until it gets worse, now replacing the torque converter requires removing trans and usually when you are that close and trans out we rebuild it since that is how you will get full warranty on rebuild at least here in the usYou are very welcome :)
