Hi .

Yes this does sound like a turbo issue if the engine is not smoking ,

99% of engine power loss is due to turbo failure ,and failure is normally due to bad engine oil service or cheap engine oils used ..

The Turbo on this model are a known problem for failing anytime after 50-60.000 miles .

Have the turbo tested to be sure ,

Need further assistance then please get back to me if needed.
