Best guess would be the Torque Converter stuck in lock up...It would make sense

Possibly a vacuum leak. Does the engine sounds like it's "bubbling" when you accelerate? Do you hear a whistling/whooshing sound?

no i dont notice any bubbling sounds but if it IS a vacuum leak where would it most likely be? no wooshing noises ive notices either. and where could i find a torque converter to buy because ive been searching and have turned up no results for bmws.

IF it were a vacuum leak large enough to stall your car out you WOULD notice a wooshing sound...check E-bay I found one there, also call your local tranny shops, last resort call the dealer.
