IX auto tranny issue - help.

1989 325IX auto.
This might be an issue with my torque converter. When its in drive and I am slowing and stopped, it feels like there is still some drag from the crank and the rpms will drop to ~600 and lumpy. If I slip it into N or P, idle is around 800 and smooth.
Tranny fluid level is fine, but I don't know much about autos so looking for some advice. How do the clutches in these work? Lubrication not circulating? Not enough fluid? Too much? failing TorqConv?

Tranny also takes a second or 2 to engage D or R.

Anyone have a spare IX auto tranny they can pass off? Mine ha 320k on it.
