    And not when you put in drive? The IAC valve is what maintains the idle when going from no engine load (park or neutral) to engine load (reverse and drive).

    Unplug the iac and try reverse, if it doesn't stall you need a new iac valve. If it still stalls, iac is not the issue. How high is your idle set at? When mine was automatic it would stall going in reverse and drive, bumped the idle up and it helped big time.
