    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?

    Change broken motor mount(s) and then check IAC (idle air control) valve. If you've had connectors off at the throttle body , check and make sure the TPS plug is in securely. AND just to be sure --the check engine light is NOT on correct?
