I searched and didn't find this exact problem. When I shift into reverse the car will "buck" the RPMs will fluctuate between about 500 and 800, and the whole engine moves.

If I let off the brake it lurches back then stops, back then stops, etc. If I apply a tiny bit of throttle it stops bucking and backs up just fine. It the car is cold (first thing in the morning, for instance) it doesn't do this until it warms up, so for example I leave my house for work, back out of the driveway just fine. Get to work and try to park and it starts bucking.

I checked the transmission fluid, and it was fine, looked pretty clear and wasn't low according to the dipstick.

Any Ideas?
