Why does my truck keep dying?

(1991 Ford Ranger)
When in reverse, every time i release the clutch (while giving it gas) my engine dies. Took me about 5 minutes to back up 5 ft. It's a 1991 ford ranger, manual transmission.

Possible engine mount failure - allowing excessive engine movement which is stressing wiring harness while in reverse - engine torque / movement is in opposite direction when in reverse gear.

Wiggle testing wire harness with engine on may reveal wire harness danage or wiring connection problems.

IF unfamiliar with procedure - seek *hands-on* assistance from qualified personnel.
