I would like to know why does my 1991 Honda Accord shut off when I put it in reverse?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Nelmarie, WIthout any further information from you about patterns in driving, you may want to have your torque converter solenoid inspected. This can fail causing your torque converter not to release.

Maryann Croce, Owner at Croce’s Transmission Specialists Hi Nelmarie, On your 1991 Honda Accord, (assuming it's an automatic) if it shuts off only in reverse it may or may not be transmission related. The vehicle will need to be road tested to recreate your concern. Give a shop that you choose a complete description of when it happens and under what circumstances. This will usually save you time and money. Good Luck.
