Q: shut off in reverse on 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

my car needed a exhaust manifold changed, and valve cover gasket replaced, after that was done I drove the car for about 60 miles home. Now when I try to drive it out from my garage and set it in reverse it shuts off. What could cause this?

I suspect the repairs done are unrelated to the car now shutting off in reverse. Check the transmission fluid level first but the problem may well be in the transmission. Hopefully the problem is more simple perhaps when you put the car in reverse the engine torques in a way that displaces a wiring harness or air intake boot.
