2006 Ford Fiesta - Car revving when idle and driving and warning lights on dash Sign In

Hey guys, I recently (last week) brought a 2006 Ford Fiesta 1.6l three door hatchback, it has a duratec engine and has done 146000km, it's last service was at about 136000km.
So last night I started up the car and for some reason the revs jumped straight to about 3000 and sat around that I didn't really think much of it and started driving home (was at work only about 3km journey) on the way home the engine warning light came on and the automatic transmission warning light started flashing... Whenever I push down on the clutch the revs would jump up to about 4000rpm again and then when the clutch is disengaged again the car feels like it's pulling itself, then it started sort of 'spluttering' with my foot on the accelerater at about 3000rpm it would fluctuate about 300rpm either way, wouldn't accelerate anymore and sounded like it wanted to stall/losing power. My knowledge of cars is pretty shallow as I'm more of a motorbike person any help you could give would be much appreciated, before this the car was driving fine and I didn't see any problems with it.

Get codes read right away and a diagnosis made. Seems you aren't going to do this but ask up front what it will involve and how much. Blinking warning are serious and any warnings ignored usually cost lots more or more problems than you have right now,
