Exclamation 528e Idles fine then dies in gear

Just bought this 83 528e, surges a bit at idle so I changed the plugs, o2 and washed out the MAS. There is a yellow flashing light in between the signal light on dash. Ran better so I went for a drive. Auto trani, after a cpl of miles it started loosing power and then died. No power, nada, nothing. Oil light came on also b4 it started loosing power then died
