First let me extend to you a hale and hearty welcome to the forum. 75702

Have you changed the air filter recently? If yes, definitely check the hose/connections right off the air filer box down to the turbo inlet. An air leak there can cause the symptoms you describe.

If that connection looses integrity the computer(s) notices the difference in air flow expected from the MAF and the other sensors/calculated air mass values. That makes the computer unhappy.

Even if you haven't mucked around there it is worth checking. The hose clamp has some history of not being properly tightened.

Good luck. vic
