are you sure it was a gearbox [ which would imply Selespeed ] shaped symbol?

perhaps it was an engine shaped symbol?

If the pipe was split before the throttle body that would be enough to make the Engine ( shaped ) Management Light come on. You may need a diagnostic session to clear this error & in turn that 'might' cure the hesitation issue.

otherwise if bad acceleration from cold starts continues after you have cleared the faults on the ecu, then I'd supect water or oil has got in around the spark plugs or they plugs could be old & in need of replacing. 60,ooo miles is their lifetime. NGK plugs are the best to use.
