Does the engine or SVS light come on when it faults ?

Thanks for that, first you need to check on some basic stuff, check and replace the fuel and air filters if needed.

Then check that the boost pressure pipes are not split also check the small vacuum pipes and their rubber unions for splits.

Then check that the turbo waste gate is free and if possible pressure test the diapragm.

If all this is OK a common cause on this engine is a faulty mass air meter.

I hope this helps, best regards, Vauxdoc.
