Vauxhall Astra goes into limp mode

2003 Vauxhall Astra Problem

The Problem:

HI.CAN ANYONE HELP WITH THIS PROB.
ASTRA CDTI 1.7 2003. THE CAR RUNS FINE AND PULLS WELL BUT WHEN ON MOTORWAY DOING LETS SAY 70MPH IF I TRY TO ACCELERATE THE ENGINE WARNING LIGHT COMES ON AND IT GOES INTO LIMP MODE. SOON AS IVE TURNED OFF IT CLEARS AND IS FINE UNTIL IAM BACK ON THE MOTORWAY IN THE SAME SITUATION. ITS SEEMS ALSO THAT IT SEEMS TO HAPPEN MORE IF IAM GOING SLIGHTLY UP HILL PUTTING THE ENGINE UNDER MORE STRAIN. BUT AT SLOW SPEEDS AROUND TOWN ITS FLIES NO PROBLEM. IVE HAD THE FAULT CODE CHECKED AND IT COMES UP AS TURBO BOOST SENSOR BUT IAM WONDERING IF THE EGR CAN GO FAULTY CONFUSING THE SENSOR. IF IT IS THE SENSOR DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE ITS SITUATED ON THE ENGINE???
