similar problem

We have a similar problem in our auto 98 Scenic

The charge light periodically comes on and the gear box goes haywire not changing to the next gear (reaving really high) and sometimes starting off in a low gear(no the snow start is not engaged). Heavy thump changes. The car will sometimes rev very high and i let off the throttle a bit can sometimes trick it into changing. Again the problem goes away for an undetermined time if I stop turn off and restart.

It's a strange problem so a little hard to pin point the exact situation it arises. Usually it is when going up hill or accellerating when overtaking on the highway(the most annoying time).

Hoping to get some better understanding of the problem before I let some monkey touch it and maybe fix the wrong part.

Wondering how much of the problem is electric alternator/solenoid as has been suggested in this thread.
Any 2cents appreciated.
