Ex is running great recently but I got a new problem that is not critical so I thought I would investigate before it turns into a big problem.

Every time I start up and pop it into reverse without warming up I will stall out. It is always corrected by starting up again and reving up a few times, and it doesn't stall while actually driving in reverse, but if I just pop it down to R in the morning it will die 9/10 times.

Any thoughts, maybe this is a common problem and someone already has a fix for it.
