Sticks in high gear

1998 SLK 230 160K miles. So Cal. Sticks in high gear and tranny disengages at stop lights, around corners and randomly while driving. After re-starting engine it all re-sets perfectly for a while. Occasionally after long freeway drive engine idles so rough it almost stalls, then perfect after another re-start of the engine. Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks!
