No Turbo on '06 159

I am currently having problems with the turbo on my '06 plate 159 2.4 jtm. The problem started around 2 months ago when the turbo failed to go above .8 bar, this was while i was in fast moving motorway traffic. After pulling over and turning off the engine the problem cleared, though the engine warning indicator stayed lit. After a while this then cleared. All part of the Italian character I thought! (I've previously owned a 75)! Now again twice on a trip home from Ireland it happened again, and again the warning light is currently on. Anyone had similar? Getting a little tired of this form of character!

Sounds like the EGR valve, not the turbo. You could try cleaning it, but you're more likely to need a new one (it's a lot cheaper than the turbo).
