Your transmission fluid contain water,thats why the colour of the fluid changed to pink.And of such the clutch is slipping causing the engine to reve up before shifting - Check transmission cooler.

SOURCE: System Too Lean (Bank2)

I had an issue like this. The Zetec engine sounded like an old Diesel, ran rough, and had little power.
One of the hoses to the intake had come off. I don't know if it was a vacuum hose, or a PCV hose, but once I reconnected it, the engine ran the way it should.

SOURCE: car died, repeated clicking noise when start attempt...

The clicking is the Starter Solonoid not getting enough CCAs from the battery to start it.
While running - the alternator should be able to charge the system to 14.4V.

11 volts you are experiencing tells me your alternator is faulty.

Your dash and other items were turning off/on while driving because the voltage probably dipped below 8.4v.

Your vehicle runs off the alternator power once started. The battery is only there to get the engine spinning initially.

A backyard mechanic's way to test the alternator is to start the vehicle - then remove the positive wire on the battery (coming from the alternator).

** If the vehicle stays running - the battery is problematic - probably a dead cell - have it LOAD tested at a local parts shop for free.

** If the vehicle dies shortly after removing the + battery wire - the alternator is failing - and replacement is necessary.

SOURCE: over drive light on shifter blinks and check engine light is lit.

You need to have it scanned for codes. The flashing overdrive light means it has trouble codes that pertain to the transmission.

Have you checked for Diagnostic Fault Codes yet? Have your local auto parts store check for codes if you don't have access to a code reader. New Bluetooth OBD readers (ELM327) that pairs with your smartphone or laptop and a free app. (Called "Torque") Great reader for under $20 in most cases. Start there first. Is there a Temp Gauge for coolant? If so.......what is the operating temp doing during those highway trips? If the coolant is overheating, it may be heating the transmission too.
1. Check for codes.
2. Have cooling system checked, cleaned, flushed, and new coolant installed.
