In high dust areas, problems with the EGR system are common. The filter for the EGR solenoid may plug and cause the EGR to activate when it should not; this can cause the engine to stall. The dirty filter should be replaced to correct this concern.

we went to pass a car so my girlfriend stept on the gas and the car down shifted and took off normally. we noticed a rotten egg smell and then car started running really ruff. almost like it was coughing. then we noticed a smell of oil. we drove maybe a mile home and parked it. next day she left for work and she noticed there was a hesitation and maybe drove a half mile and the car just died. when i got there it started back up but wasnt running right at all. there was a heavy miss and then just shut down. now the car wont start. sounds like it wants to but wont.
