    W124 'stalls' when put from drive into reverse?

    Hi, I've owned my '94 e220 coupe for a few months now and it's going great. However, recently, when I have put the car into reverse, what I can only describe as the car stalling. Any reason why this would happen? Many thanks.

    Almost stalls then revs surge.

    Folks Just had a full engine oil change including a flush on my C55. Now when I pull up at a junction the revs drop as if the car is going to stall then they surge back up. This makes the car want to push forward and is not nice. Any ideas? Car is fine at idle and drives well with no issues.
