Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

It sounds as if the engine is going into limp in. If the engine controller sees an issue it thinks can cause damage or thinks it doesn't have complete control then it will set a fault code and can derate power. The issue could literally be dozens of things including injectors, sensors, wiring, poor fuel supply, turbo issues or a boost leak.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes are setting. If the engine is going into limp in then there will be codes set that will need to be used as a starting point for diagnosis.
