    Andy - there are hundreds of threads on the forum about this. Just do a search for turbo overboost. The problem is sticking vanes in the turbo which produce the overboost condition and the engine shuts down for protection.

    Some people have managed to clean the vanes and temporarily cure the condition but it means removing the turbo (injected cleaner never really works ). The other reason could be a sticking actuator arm.

    If you have any turbo whine (like a police siren ) as well then be prepared for a new turbo !
