Hi there ,good morning to you
What engine Varient is fitted to your vehicle ie 2,0tdci
Ok does any warning lights flash when you lose power
Is it more a holding (kanagrooing under hard acceleration )
You say there is a gearbox light on the dash do you mean an amber engine light

Hi there good evening to you
Ok this is the engine management light (emmissions controlled light )
The first thing that must be done in order to find the root cause is to have diagnostic fault code check done
I suspect you may have anger bakve issues this can cause a lack of power/lack of throttle response and sometimes black smoke under harder acceleration
