If it is an automatic. then you most likley have a 2-4 servo piston that is worn in the transmission. It's not a big job but it does require pan & valvebody to be removed. I would not attempt this repair yourself.

I am assuming that this is a manual tranny if you have an idiot light. Sounds like you have a clutch that is slipping on you. Put the car on a level surface apply the e brake ,start the car. now put the car in first gaer , don't give it gas and slowly let out the clutch. If the car doen't want to stall out right away as you further let out the clutch or you hear a sliding sount you probably have a slipping clutch. Hope this helps you
