Hello and Welcome -

My name is MIKE - Im happy to help / advise you ..

When you have this fault - the EDC light coming on - more often than not, its a clogging fuel filter - or, air getting sucked into the system - or, a system fault - by way of fuel pump / injectors etc...

Usually though - simply having a new fuel filter will cure this... To explain, the EDC stands for Electronic Diesel Control - any faults such as above will cause the engine management computer to out the EDC light on - and you will then get a loss of power either because of the actual fault in itself - or, because the computer invokes Limp Home mode - to get you home albeit underpowered -

So I suggest have a new filter fitted- check the lines for any signs of diesel leaks - any such would need to be corrected of course - and there is a high chance that will see this cured for you.

IF not - then you will need plug in diagnostics to see exactly why the EDC fault light is on and then go from there.. but do try as above first...

I note what you say re the turbo too - that would not put that light on - not unless some fault is having a knock on effect... Check the hoses to and from the turbo - any splits / rips loose fittings etc will cause such noise - best to check that before having the actual turbo checked-- but also the above too.. because if its starved of fuel - it can cause excess roar noise.... so it all needs checking through as above.

Kind Rgds - MIKE.
