Stalling when put in reverse

Hey guys so this is my first time posting, so bare with me...
so my 1998 ZJ I've overhauled the motor, transmission and a bunch of sensors and still have been unable to solve this issue. Works fine when cold as soon as it warms up drives forward with no problem but as soon as I shift in reverse starts to shake and if I don't give it gas it will die and will have no power. Please help thanks to all

My 95 Laredo did this when I first got it. It only stalled when backing out of my driveway, cold and hot. I got bored one day and decided to change my fuel filter. When I pulled the old filter off and dumped the contents out, it looked like black muddy gas. When I started her up later that afternoon, she purred like a kitten. And when I reversed out of the driveway, there was absolutely no stalling. None.

A couple days later I cleaned the TB real well and gave the Jeep a Seafoam treatment. She ran even better. I had that Jeep for another year after that and never any other stalling problems.

Hope this helps.

Also, this website has a plethora of information regarding our beloved Jeeps. Don't be afraid of the search feature.

I had a similar problem...in my case it wasn't stalling, but it was cutting out pretty bad (only sometimes tough)...
My problem turned out to be bad sparkplug wires.....but since you say that you have overhauled everything, I highly doubt that you didn't put new wires on already?

Hi guys went to the transmission store where I bought all my other transmission stuff and told them about the stalling the guy pulled out a $34.00 shift kit just picked up the jeep today and it is not doing it anymore! After almost a year and a bunch of trial n error looks like we got it thanks I hopes this helps anyone with this type of nightmare. Now I can focus on other upgrades like gears n lighting

Thanks
