Sounds like an transmission control module problem I have seen this and often times just replaced the trans mission control module and found everything working properly again.

SOURCE: 2006 mini overheating
Check for leaks around the Coolant Overflow Reservoir (the yellow bottle in the middle of the firewall.) I had the same problem with over-heating, and replaced the thermostat with no help. I went to the dealer and picked up the Reservoir for $26~, installed it in 5 mins (at work) and haven't had a cooling issue since.

Engine stalls cold or RPM
fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control. If the above cleaning doesn't cure your issues you need to have the computer controlled automatic idle speed control system diagnosed and repaired by a dealer or electronic engine control repair shop.
