Angry Losing Power

Have a V50 estate 1600 diesel which is losing power when climbing hills, particularly when I have to ease off acceleration. I find that if it is a long hill and I keep the pedal steady, it will eventually gain power. When I come down the gears it just gets worse. Been back into the dealer but they or their computer cannot identify the problem. Any ideas ????
