Numerical Problems with Non-Linear RAS models

I am trying to simulate the flow in a channel with periodic hills using a nonlinear RAS model and simpleFoam (incompressible).
The mesh is of good quality and I am using upwind schemes for all quantities apart from the non-linear stress term:
div(nonlinearStress) Gauss linear;
My problem is that I get massive oscillations in almost all flow quantities, see attached pictures!
I am quite sure that the oscillations are caused by using: div(nonlinearStress) Gauss linear;
Therefore, I have tried to use a limited version (e.g. div(nonlinearStress) Gauss limitedLinear 1; ) but this does not work.
Does anyone know how a bounded version of Gauss linear can be used on div(nonlinearStress)?
