Since you have a "Check light" then the vehicle can be scanned. Autozone, Oreilys, and Advance are several places which will do a free scan.
There may be some pressure "bypass gates" which regulate maximum boost and you may have one that is stuck open. The turbo would add some noise under the hood if a sidewall was blown through. A bad bypass valve would reduce your boost pressure too. Do a scan and see what it identifies.

You may sneak it out with small fingers with out pulling out the starter.

SOURCE: headlight adjustment

If you look at the front of the headlight, there are actually a couple of screws around the edge. These are your adjustment screws.

Engine managment light flashes (glow plugs light)


the car is going into limp mode due to an engine management fault. have to check what the fault is with a code reader. if the milage is high 100,000+ could be a turbo fault (overboosting), as this will put the car into limp mode.
