2001 530i has stalled three times (months apart) after idling for maybe 5 minutes; stalls as i take off, get eml and/or trans error, wheel sensor error lights. Restart 3 or 4 times, seems to be OK. Maybe unrelated, but I also sense that the auto trans is not as smooth shifting out of first (jumps a bit). At 95,000 I don't want something big. Any guesses? Just had inspection one, but should I change trans fluid for the jumping or is this a control module thing? Thank you.

Sounds like tranny software/control module thing but with 95k, changing the auto tranny fluid/filter doesn't sound like a bad idea regardless of the real problem.
