Gear changes

My 95 e38 gets stuck in third gear and I have to toggle the A/M switch when the rpm's are under 2.5. Is my tranny about to go or is this a treatable problem? It happens intermittely. (sp) Just wanted to get your advice.

It's like it doesn't want to shift.

More info required - "it's like it doesn't want to shift" is somewhat lacking in detail:
Do you mean the trans will not upshift or downshift at all unless shifted manually?
Or does the trans refuse to upshift unless the rpms are over 2500?
Does it downshift to 3rd when revs fall below 2500?
Under what road / load / heat conditions does this symptom occur?
Intermittently while driving on the same trip, or intermittently from one day to the next?
