Sounds like a problem in the APC and/or the parts involved in controling the turbo (which seems to be very common) ... Before digging that way, check your turbo, by dissconnecting the right vacuum tube (looking fwd) from the solenoid valve, which is located on the right upper edge of the radiator ... its a little round thing with 3 vacuum lines and two electric lines connected to it.
