Have your mechanic do a 'wiggle test'. Possible wire harness issue. Engine movement is different from drive to reverse. Engine mounts should be checked also. Mech. will/should know what to do.
Going along with pushrods' suggestion , also check all air intake hoses for cracks or leaks that engine movement would affect----Mass-air flow meter could be affected.
