Just wan ted to let you know it starts and idels fine, just got back from a 1800 mile round trip, freeway 75mph and had problem 700 miles back on trip, also today locally at my home. Looses power and won,t accelerate past 1000 rpm---shut off wait 2 - 3 min restart and accelerates?

Hello, Sorry for the delayed response.

All the codes you posted lead me to believe that the turbocharger is sticking. This is normally caused by excessive soot build up on the sliding nozzle. The most common fix for this is to simply perform a Turbocharger Cleaning Procedure. This procedure uses a factory scanner along with special cleaning solution that is injected into the turbo at the location of the sliding nozzle. Usually this procedure fixes the concern allthough sometimes this is not successful and the turbocharger may need to be replaced. If you take it to the dealer for diagnosis, they can run the P2262 diagnostic test (Routine ran using a factory scanner) that can determine ahead of time if the turbocharger needs to be replaced.

For now, I'm posting some of the diagnostic procedures for the codes so you can have an idea as to what is done to diagnose this concern..

P2563 --->> Click Here to view <<---

Read through these for now and I'll round up the one for P226B.

PS - Sorry, I'm not in a place where I can complete a phone request. Also need to let you know that there is an additional charge beyond what you have already paid for the question.. If you would still like a phone request, you should be able to initiate one from your end and if there is another expert available he will call you..

Thank you,
