Welcome to Just answer, This is a common fault on the Vivaro and is usually caused by a sticking EGR valve, this lies between the exhaust and inlet manifolds and when stuck open it caused loss of inlet boost pressure which is needed even at start up.

These valves are available on ebay CLICK HERE and are quite easy to fit.

I hope this helps, best regards, Vauxdoc.
