95 525i trany slips in 2nd only when cold

HI this is my first post I usualy just read all the postes on how to fix my car but now Iv'e learned some tricks of my own and want to help others so any questions about e34 let me know and if I can help I will. Thanks

But while im here I will ask if anyone could tell me if my trany just needs a sensor and what it's called if possible. the problem is that the tranny slips into second on cold mornings. I first thaught that the car was spinning out in gravel but it kept happening for the next few days. then it became warm out again and the car shifts perfect I live in Florida so it rarely gets below 50degrees but thats around when it happens. I was told it was a sensor.

Could be a solonoid in the box, what I would go for 1st is a box service, filter and fluid and do a diagnostic, erase adaptions in the EGS.

Unfortunately, 91-95 525i's had GM transmissions ... that should tell you everything.
