1995 f250 powerstroke with automatic tranmission

Truck starts fine but dies when I put it in reverse, I can rev it up and put it in reverse and it will not die. Has anyone else had this problem or know what it is going to take to fix it. Truck has 225000 miles on it. I was told the engine was rebuilt and has 100,000 miles on it, and the trans has 35000, miles on rebuild.

Sounds like your torque converter is locking up in reverse.

my truck would do this but my truck would stall when I put it into reverse or drive. Mine would not die if I put the truck in gear and get on the throttle but it would still lug it down some. I replaced the torque converter and fixed the problem.
