SOURCE: Service engine soon light flashing on acceleration

It sounds like u got a coil pack going out. Alot of times when your engine is cold or when you arn't putting a load on it the coils won't fail. How ever when the engine reaches operating temperatures and there is load on the coils that is when they are going to break down. my advice would be to get a scanner and see what cylinder the missfire is at then swwap that coil to another cylinder to verify that the coil is defective. If it is purchase another with a new spark plug put it in and let it rip.

2005 a4 while driving lose acceleration and power

Would really need more details on the vehicle. Petrol / diesel etc

Is the engine management light on? Are there any fault codes?

Power lose while driving is most likely to be caused by the mass air flow meter, leak at a vacuum or intake hose, turbo leak etc.

More details please........

When driving my ford maverick 1997 then slowing down i get a rustling sound coming from the gear box especially when engine braking what could this be

Check the tranny fluid level, and stop engine braking.
While I normally like to do it as well, if you suspect a problem, it is not worth it to let it get worse.
Since trucks have lower gear ratios, it is possible to put on too much stress with engine braking.

2004 f 250 diesel smokeing and losing power

Is the check engine light on? Any more specific info like year, make, model, what color the smoke is, how many miles, etc........ This could help to narrow down the problem other than the smoke which all diesels do with quick acceleration. You might get a quicker answer if you are more detailed!
