1998 SL2
Default Reverse slam with erratic RPMs

We have a new issue today. Whenever the car is put in reverse, thereís a delay before it SLAMS into reverse. After, the RPMs are erratic and it feels like the car is slamming into and out of reverse.

This doesnít happen when the car is in drive and there havenít been any issues with the forward gears shifting while driving.

Current codes:
P0122- Throttle/Pedal position sensor/switch ĎAí circuit low
P0401- EGR ĎAí flow insufficient
P0440- Evap system

I know next to nothing about cars except what Iíve learned here. Could this maybe (please) not be a transmission issue?
