    have you fault code read it? im betting theres an over boost fault code in there due to the variable vane turbo not working properly.
    you can remove the turbo and take the exhaust side off and soak the unit in diesel for a day or two then give it a good clean with a tooth brush.... then reassemble. or a new turbo....
