Won't stay in gear - automatic

My girlfriend has a 1988 BMW 528e well it don't want to stay in gear, we got stuck on the highway unable to stay in drive it just goes out of gear then I have to put it in park turn it off and back on then drive to move a quarter mile and it does it again. It don't feel like the transmission more like it don't know its suppose to be in drive, and the other night I went out to start it while it was in park it wouldn't start I had to shift to reverse then back to park for it to start. Could anyone please help shed some light on this so I can fix her car? Thanks in advance!
