Customer Question

hi, my mercedes sprinter 2008 311cdi is poorly, its only done 85k miles, recently its had the dpf removed and mapped out, (5 months ago) new turbo with electronic actuator (3 months ago) new throttle body assembly valve (2 months ago) its been driving great but on friday it seemed to lose power and smoking excessively, it then cleared and i drove on but eventualy it gave up the ghost, its been in the garage where no faukts register, if they unplug the throttle valve it runs ok, same as when they unplug the maf sensor, both poarts have been checked and work but van just wont rev, any advise? im stuck and the garage say it sounds like air leak but cant find it, any ideas at all would be apreciated,
