Hello, welcome. My name is Mike, I will do my very best to
assist you with your question.

Is this a auto gear box?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes auto TD when rpm gets to 2,000 rpm sounds like turbo kicks in then its ok its just from 1000rpm to 2,000rpm gearbox oil level ok oil looks fine

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


yes its auto TD

Expert:  mike_a_mechanic replied 3 years ago.
Ok from what you are describing this is a oil flow issue to the turbo. This is actually pretty common. What normally cures this problem is having the turbo feed lines and the turbo. Boost valve cleaned as they get restricted with carbon debris restricting the oil flow.
