Those spanner lights are a bit tricky, can end up replacing the whole engine! ;). Have experience with those and a holden scan tool.

Hi mobile mechanic over 15 years lots of experience in the industry can help let me know when do you want me to come over
all work is under warranty
Hey bud, engine light come on and car loses power suddenly means your car has gone in to "limp home" . I'm a qualified mechanic and have dealt with these issues before. "Limp home" or "limp mode" is just another signal to tell you to pull over. You delete the fault, your car will run fine but very very quickly shift back into limp mode. It is definitely a sensor. For that you will need to scan because there are so many. But my guess it's that it is most probably the throttle position sensor. The throttle position sensor (TPS) is part of your vehicle's fuel management system, and helps ensure that the correct mixture of air and fuel is delivered to your engine. The TPS provides the most direct signal to the fuel injection system of what power demands are being made by the engine. How's it idling?
I stopped working on cars in 2011 and don't know anyone in the industry.
Call AFI tell them your problem and they will troubleshoot over the phone.
