The PT does not have a carb. If the fuel pump was dying it would just be dead so thats good news.

There are many things that can cause this, when a car is put in reverse it is put under slightly more load than it is in drive.

Start with power options, battery , terminals, connections, and grounds.

If those are all good check the camshaft sensor, idle air control valve, all vaccume lines, fuel injectors, EGR valve. for dirt, craked or worn bits etc

IS your engine showing a check engine light?

well the IAC is a very likely cause, especially if it only does it in reverse, my car used to sputter down when i put it in reverse all the time, never died, but came pretty close. Cleaned the IAC and the problem went away :-)
