The issue that you are having is consistent with a failing turbine speed sensor located behind the conductor plate inside the transmission. This is a common issue on these vehicles and to correct the issue the sensor and the plate is to be replaced.

Hi Mike,

I took into the garage today and after several test He changed Air Mass Meter.

He said to ignore error code for heater booster as they are common fault and no action is needed

air mass value was 0

on/off ratio of component y31/1(egr value was 3%

this was the test result of exhaust gas re-circulation

i will let you know of the progress

Yes this sounds like the shop is on the right track.
