Transmission problem
1998 Ford Explorer 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 157000 miles

my 1998 ford explorer putters and stalls when put into reverse and after it has heated up, will stall when it comes to a complete stop; unless it is shifted into Neutral. Would this be a transmission issue, IAC, Torque Converter or something else?

Do you
have the same problem?

Has the check engine light come on? Also, have you checked for vacuum leaks?

No, no check engine light. Everything else seems to be fine. Just that issue with the stalling.

If you haven't done it yet, check for vacuum leaks, and fuel pressure. Let me know what you find.
