It's likely an injector problem, a simple method to locate the problem is to use a short section of 8 or 10mm diam.hose dip one end of the hose to the injector lead and the other end to your ears,
you should hear a loud knocking or tapping noise, do it one injector at a time. any injector with a weak or muffled noise is likely faulty injector. replace or dismantle the injector and clean the pin.

so are you asking how to diagnose turbo issues, on fixya
that be like asking how to do brain surgery on , Mr, PHIL
the PCM may see the boost too low for load and RPM.
so, that can be lots of things, besides a bad turbo cant spool.
even a stuck open waste gate.
or controls issues,
best is to get a complex car serviced, by someone that can work complex turbo diesels,

if serious on DIY, why not buy the book on the car
the FSM
then see the turbo section and do the tests stated there.
if that sounds hard, it is,

Hissing sound and lose of power going up hill


I am assuming you have a diesel as based on your description, the most likely cause is a split or crack in a turbo hose. You will also get black smoke if that is the cause.

Vdj76r turbo diesel v8 wagon. Why does it have an occasional engine rattle when cold?


A brief engine rattle occurs when starting the car because the oil has not reached all of the engine, do not apply accelerator when starting in the morning. On diesel engines, if the oil is not changed regularly, the oil gets thick and loses it's viscosity.

2005 a4 while driving lose acceleration and power


Would really need more details on the vehicle. Petrol / diesel etc

Is the engine management light on? Are there any fault codes?

Power lose while driving is most likely to be caused by the mass air flow meter, leak at a vacuum or intake hose, turbo leak etc.

More details please........

04 diesel toyota landcruiser, no power when I accelerate. only revs to about 1500rpm. diesel and filters clean.


well it runs,,,,,
low power on a diesel is
1: low compression
2: bad fueling
#2 can take forever to find, if you dont know what engine it is or what fuel system was used.. no country stated, so cant guess
read the wiki on land cruiser and see what you have.
we dont know.

series 80?
series 100,200 ??? what?

one of those last 4? engines?
once there, we try to find out how it works. each varies.
can fix engines with out knowing exactly what it is, and the injection system, used.

Freelander TD4 2004 Engine light comes on at 3000rpm cuts power


I don't wish to worry you but I think the turbo kicks in at around 2500rpm and it sounds like it isn't doing so, hence the management light coming on. It could be that failing. Be careful here, apparently the turbo uses the engine oil to maintain its operating temperature and if the turbo seals fail in anyway it eats the engine oil, with the resulting total failure of the power unit. So if you do nothing else, keep an eye on the engine oil level. (You may also notice oil smoke out the exhaust as well).
Unfortunately it looks like a trip to the dealer for them to check what the engine management is saying.
