Camoray is on a distinguished road
Default 2000 Ram 1500 stalling in reverse

2000 Ram 1500...5.2 V-8....A/T....2 wheel dr....105k miles

When I am in a parking spot and have to back out "slowly" the engine stalls....It starts right up again but will stall as soon as I shift into reverse,
and again and again.....IF I put my foot lightly on the brake and give it some gas it will back up OK....But if I just start to back up slowly it stalls.
At first it was just doing this intermittenly but now it's getting worse...
Any ideas????

PS....RPM @ idle 775-800

Thanks for the come back.....I replaced the forward O2 sensor just last year.....Haven't had the check engine light come on for any problems but I'll have them check the rear one right away.

Sorry, I didn't mean any disrespect.....I just don't know that much about
this kind of problem and I think I better get it to a shop, get it fixed before it gets worse and pay the piper....I sure do appreciate you trying to help.....I'll let you know what the problem was when I find out..Thanks again..

Default Found the problem

After doing a lot of suggested things like checking for vacuum leaks, cleaning the throttle body, etc, etc, etc.....it turned out to be the crankshaft sensor......$50 part but a pain to install.....trucks now
running great.
