Car starts, runs, and drives beautifully; One issue that happens regularly (if I let it): If I shift gears after idling or driving, and take my foot off of the brake quickly, the car dies. For example, if I pull in to a parking spot, brake, shift to reverse, and let my foot off the brake immediately, the car may die. If I leave my foot on the brake, I can hear the engine rev down slightly, and then back up; if I wait until the rev-up (3-5 seconds) to release the brake, the car works perfectly.
Currently, I'm managing by waiting for the rev-up, which isn't a problem in most cases, but I'm wondering what is causing the car to die if I don't take that brief pause.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you very much!
