95 BMW 318i E36 occasional loss of power.. Help!

Hi there,

I own a 1995 318i E36.
I've noticed lately that sometimes when turning a corner, going over a speed-hump or coming to a stop on a hill, that my car will feel like it has slipped into neutral for a few seconds before jumping back into gear and taking off. The car still revs fine but just seems like it slips out of gear occasionally.

It seems to be worsening of late, I suspect it may be an issue with the transmission as the engine seems to be running fine. (The car is an automatic)

Anyone ever encountered this issue before?
