Can you solve this Vauxhall problem?

I have a Vauxhall Viraro 06 reg 1.9 diesel, a couple of faults but not sure if related. Sometimes when you start it it wont rev up until 5-10 seconds after starting (I can cope with this!)

Main problem is going into limp mode as soon as you want power (can't do more than 2500revs or more than about 70mph) it's been in the garage & so far they have repaired the injector wiring under the air box, new EGR value, Boost pressure solenoid (although they have only replaced one code 056MO2 & then was talking of another boost pressure something or other to replace too?) fault still comes up with 1815 inlet air/boost pressure circuit fault.

As a lone female using this van to get to dog shows often in the early hours of the morning I really need this sorting & the garages just don't seem to know.

The fault 1815 seems quite common on this vehicle, but the rectification is always problematic as it could be a number of things.

Having had some work already done by the garage,we would suggest that the following be checked:

1. Air Box filter- is it fitted correctly, no broken clips etc, also is the filter in good condition?

2. All boost pressure pipes/connections from Turbo to intercooler intact.

3. Turbo actuator working.

4. MAF (mass air flow) operating.

5.Engine loom at front of vehicle - ( it rubs thru at the slam panel on passenger side) in good condition.

6.Turbo itself- worn bearings .

You may want to go onto the HJ website and look under the "good garages" near you and then call them in the first instance.
