Question about BMW 5 Series
Try to understand if the car is stalling because the transaxle is shifting in the wrong gear, or because the engine does not hold idle and dies.
THe most common situation is that the engine is stalling because of a gear-related problem. In that case I suggest doing a code scanning, then replacing the gear fluid and fixing the problem that can be caused by a defective sensor or by a different fault. The most common fault causing this problem is faulty throttle position sensor.
See the links below for more troubleshooting.
Do a scan code, if problem is transmission you will likely get P0700. See:http://www.fixya.com/cars/r3559271-i_get_code_p0700_after_an_obdii_scan
