My Ride: 1999 bmw 328i e46
99 328i idle problem

so ive recently changed all the oils and filters on this 1999 bmw 328i E46 vehicle. mind you the vehicle ilwas sitting in sombodys front yard for a whole year. replaced the oil filter housing, alternator, top radiator hose, coolant resivor tank, coolant sensor, battery, oil filters, fuel filter, transmission filter, changed the oil, and about 3 quarts of trans fluid with original ATF1 about 22 bucks a quart. rite now the vechile is acting strange with the idle, i step on the gas and the vehicle will start to move forward and as i stare at the mph guage it takes a second for it to start moving up. as i start to further drive ahead i notice if i press to hard on the accileration and go past 3000 rpm the vehicle will not shift on itslef unless i easy off the gas peddle. also when i come to a stop the vehicles idle guage starts jumping up and down a bit for 0 rpm to about 1500 rpm. whats the conclusion to this problem?
