Was having some fun and car spun out

Did a 360 or two and the engine cut off on me. It's a 335i sport package automatic trans. the engine light was on and but as soon as I turned the car back on it went away. Why would the car stall when it's an automatic?

Did you by any chance roll backwards while the car was in drive?

This happened to my buddy and I about a year ago. His 335i stopped responding when he spun out and rolled backwards in drive, he just turned it off then back on and everything was fine.

First of all why were you doing 360's? Second, you probably triggered some sort of sensor.

1. It was too embarrassed to continue
2. Decided you were too young to drive the car
3. Ate too many doughnuts earlier in life

I was actually drifting but I let go of the gas so the momentom made me spiral out of control and I had over steered which caused me to spin out. Im pre sure the car went backwards a bit too. It was intense to say the least

The traditional cookie cutter automatic transmission does not stall because most of the time the torque converter is unlocked and the engine is not solidly connected to the wheels. The torque converter serves as a "slippable" viscous coupling between the engine and the wheels, preventing stalling even when something blocks the wheels.

Modern high-performance automatic transmissions attempt to operate in locked mode as much as possible, meaning that the engine is solidly connected to the wheels for much bigger percentage of time. When the transmission is locked, a sudden restriction applied at the wheels can potentially stall the engine before the transmission manages to react and unlock itself.
