    Rough idle. Dealer did some "update" in response to but problem persists.

    stalls when coming in or out of driveway/parking spaces, on hard turns, and now at stop signs and traffic lights. Starts right back up, but frequently is definitely increasing. Was totally dead last weekend and after jumping, still stalled. Put in a new battery so it starts consistently, but still stalls out.

    Wife almost got crushed both times! Making a turn without using throttle it would just die and put her in the middle of the road. I've noticed it stumble a few times when I turn the steering wheel, but it never died on me. I don't think it'd be an EGR problem more of a steering pump issue maybe idle drops off to less than 500 then cuts off.

    I was using my cruise, travelling from MI to TN (within the mountains/hills), I noticed that my check engine light was on, the car would rev from 3000 hp, to 2000 hp with a "jerking motion" (running rough) and she stalled mid freeway. (thank goodness there wasn't a truck blocking my getting to the shoulder of the road). I'm wondering if it's the same problem anyone else has. Thanks for the tips.

    While driving down the road with air conditioning on the truck starts sputtering and stalls. Turn off the AC and it runs okay.
