There is no way to adjust the turbo. It is possible that the turbo on your truck is no longer working. You also could have a fuel filter stopped up. When you rev up the engine and then let up, does it take it a little while to idle back down? If so, then you probably need to replace your fuel filter. Let me know if this helps.

change all the fuel filters and bleed any air out of the system. Check the variable action of the turbo actuator and check that the vacuum hose to it is not brittle and cracked.. Run fault codes to see if any faults have been recorded

Yes. What you are describing happened to my '04 9-5 wagon. It's the throttle body.

No acceleration, minimal movement of accelerator pedal.


hi, test your turbo pipes,
these are common to split, its the big fat pipe o/s is the 1 that splits, feel around it im sure it has a large split. to test the turbo squeeze that large pipe and get some 1 to rev, it has to inflate very hard and open your hand, if not listen for hissing if not check the turbo and air filter as might be sucked up, again its common
