There is more friction drag on the engine when in drive or reverse.
The torque converter is intended to slip, but still drains power.
If the engine is not running up to the power it should have, then you will notice the drag more.
I would suspect a vacuum leak from a broken hose, the need for a tune up, etc.
Or you could just increase the idle speed.

The reverse is the gear that is the weakest in the transmission by design. When you have trouble with reverse it is a signal to get your vehicle to a transmission shop before you are in the middle of no where and end up walking home.

Sorry, but it is not something simple that can be fixed by an untrained person! I work on cars all the time but when we find a car with internal transmission faults we send the transmission to professionals.

make sure it is getting fuel, check your fuel filter. the vehicle will run at an idle, but as soon as it is put in gear it may stop. its hard to tell without looking at it but. change fuel filter, also check cam and crankshaft sensor. these will set a problem code, if you do not have a scanner any auto parts store will scan for free. a bad camshaft sensor or crank sensor will make it shut off while driving when engine gets warm.

Sounds more like a weak fuel pump, idle controller, or well, theres a bunch of reasons you could have a rough idle.
