Car Sputters In Reverse

Title says it all... I was backing out the parking lot of wawa and noticed my car sputtering. At first I thought it was a fluke. So I tried every gear P, N, D, 1 and 2. Reverse was the only one doing it. Anybody know why?

I'm guessing its gas station, I live in ohio and travel to Florida twice a year and North Carolina and never seen one
Lol
I see noone is helping, always changed trans fluid regularly?
Tranny slipping?(bad tranny)
Some when going bad show signs in reverse, or when people have lost reverse completely
Broken motor mounts?
Don't see how broken motor mounts would only affect reverse but it's worth a shot, seen stranger things on a car

Well two weeks ago I got my trans services. And they told me that it's shifting beautifully and it just needed to be cleaned. So I know it can't be the tranny

Wb at idle, does it idle any different then before?
Have you done a tune lately, plugs and wires, I read once if you have bad egr or vacuum hose leak it'll affect reverse and idle, in park wiggle the vacuum lines and listen for any hissing

So I opened my hood and noticed my CAI was disconnected from the throttle body and a vacuum hose was actually deatached. I obv put my CAI back in its place and connected everything. I'm just wondering if that was the cause of me sputtering in reverse?
