Black smoke is evidence of a rich fuel condition.
The simplest thing to do first is to inspect the air filter.
It that doesn't help then you have a potential sensor problem that is confusing the ECM into causing a rich fuel condition

My vw caravelle has black smoke coming from the exhaust n losing power on the hills n it sometimes not idle, what might be the problem ? and I have just serviced the car

Check your air filter. Might be clogged / dirty. Replace if needed. Loss of power is due to leaky fuel injectors or fuel pressure regulator.
