Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros.
When the check engine light starts flashing, that indicates there is a misfire occurring. Now, if the RPM's were going up but acceleration doesn't seem to correlate with the increase in RPM's and it seems something is slipping, it could be the clutch. However, a misfire can cause jitter you mentioned.
What I recommend is to start by having the computer scanned for diagnostic trouble codes. Here is a quick video showing how it's done:
If you have a scanner, please do this first. If you don't, often times nationally recognized parts stores will do it for free. Once you do that, let me know what codes are found. It should indicate if there is a problem with the turbo boost solenoid, or the charge air cooler or anything else.
