95-99 e38's need to warm up! Temp needle almost out of the blue and the car shifts fine there is nothing wrong with your car. I forget what the switch is called but it is supposed to do that at start up.
DO change fluid and filter with the right stuff and feel the differance the car even idols better. Also if you have a mesh strainer on your power steering reservoir you need to change the filter at the bottom of this reservior and fluid
