2000 VW Jetta: runs..the highway when the light went

Customer Question

2000 VW Jetta VR6,   EPC light goes on and off, when it is on the RPM go very high & (ENGINE WORKSHOP FLASHES), when its off the car runs normal. I was driving on the highway when the light went on and the car seems to slam in and out of gear (Automatic).

Whats wrong? Would it be safe to drive 5 miles to a repair shop or should it be towed?
