Auto transmision light on

First post so hi guys! I have a 1995 328 auto and for some reason the transmision warning light keep comming on when i am driving. Turn it off for a while and its ok again for maybe an hour then it comes back on and im sure it does not pick up top gear again. Any ideas please. Thanks neil.

First thought is a need for a transmission fluid change.

Agreed.....^ What is the mileage.....due @ 90,000.....fluid & filter kit.This would be the first I would do if your car has close too or over 90,000 miles on it. Do you have a 95 325 or 96 328?
I used Redline D4 ATF 5.3 quarts required......Bavauto.com has it for $8.95 a quart
