No that's what I'm saying like I'm real slow when it comes to cars but I know when something goes wrong with it and thats I know when I put it in reverse its like it stalls but wen its in drive it works fine I just need to know if it sounds pretty serious or it might be something minor cause its been like this for a year now its running fine I'm just a little bit concerned that's all

Do you have any codes?Have you checked for codes?I need you to go to a auto parts store like auto zone and have them scan your car for codes. If you have any codes let me know the code numbers not the code descriptions.I have seen people let transmission problems go and it ends up destroying the transmission. What happens is something starts coming apart and the debris go thru the transmission taking out everything in its path. Without checking for codes first and then doing a pressure test next cant really say whats going on.I would then check for debris in the fluid. Its not common for reverse issues on that car the most common issue is hard shifts caused by a bad or full of debris pressure control solenoid in the transmission valve body.I have replaced a lot of those solenoids.
