Lack of power on acceleration, going into limp mode and engine management light on, fault code stored for turbo boost actuator. No fault found with boost actuator when checked. The turbo was also checked with a camera scope showing carbon build-up on turbo vanes.
The fault was cured by cleaning the intake system with Forté Diesel Intake Cleaner as per instructions. Forté Clean and Protect carried out and Forté's Diesel Turbo Cleaner and Advanced Formula Diesel Treatment were added into the fuel tank.
After a week the owner reported the fault was cured and vehicle performance was restored.
