I've had the exact dsame issue with my 1999 740IL

If I drive the car in the manual shift mode it does not do this. It seems like it has a bad sensor or the tourque converter might be on its way out. Has anyone else had this same problem? If so , what was the end result? Thanks Bruce
Hi Bruce ,
did you ever get this problem fixed and if so what was the solution? Your description was exactly what I experienced with my 99 740 with the same sevice history.
