Driving on Motorway at 70 mph and accelerating to pass a line of traffic, all power is lost and the glow lamp comes on, and acceleration is lost, so fall back in line.
The engine still runs and 70MPH is still possible, but there is no oomph tom the acceleration, and I'm told its limp home mode.
Happened at least 5 times and on one the engine cut out and I had to head for the safety lane, where I stopped and restarted the engine, and was able to get home.
I have had the turbo cited as the cause, but after restart the acceleration is back to normal; also EFG valve blamed as well as DPF, but no one seems sure.

What do you think?
