The EGR should NOT be recieving a vacuum signal at idle. Test the idle air control motor .What is the idle RPM in park with A/C off? does the idle change slightly when you turn the A/C on?
rpm with ac off is 500 turn on ac moves to 1000, checked for vac leaks changed map sensor same thing it feel like the trasmissiom has a lot of torke on the motor when put in gear at idel i can tell the motor mount are bad.one thing at a time.
