159 2.4 JTDM amber engine light

I have an amber engine management light come on my dash which i ignored for a month or so (stupidly). it hadn't affected the performance or feul consumption until recently. Now however, sometimes when i try to pull away, the revs drop massively when i lif the clutch bringing me to a stall unless i plant my foot hard on the gas. When driving the power is less than previously and it seems to have, what feels like, huge turbo lag. I was thinking it may be the injectors. any help, prices to get sorted or anything i could do myself (i am an engineer but not on cars and have little experience with them), would be appreciated.

Dealer job. The car's telling you something for a reason. Best not ignore the dash lights
Could be injectors, DPF clogged etc etc.

I had this light too on my dashboard three days ago.
Went to the dealer and they change a sensor that measures the temperature of the fuel, which i never heard about
