Rough Idle and/or Stalling Due to Glogged EGR Tube on Dodge Durango

A rough engine idle and/or engine stalling condition may develop, often associated with illumination of the Check Engine Light and an exhaust gas recirculation (ERG) fault code stored. This is commonly caused by a clogged EGR tube. The repair involves cleaning the clogged EGR tube.

2007 Dodge Durango 80,000 mi,
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.

Durango randomly dies after reversing and now randomly dies when idling at stop signs or red lights. Starts right back up but very scary and dangerous.

RPM's will rev up and down from 1000 to 3000 and stall sometimes when you let off the throttle at a stop.

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.

Cuts off while driving,wheel had to control, usually starts back up but its very dangerous it is more frequent now, there needs to be a recall on this problem.,.afraid to drive. Under these conditions

My 2006 is stalling when back up and when I stop. The rpm's are going up and doen . And feels like somethings sucking ot back like a vacuum. Have changed a few things but still doing it . Not sure what it is
2005 Dodge Durango 144,000 mi,
I had the check engine light come on. Diagnostic test results came back fault code P0404. Brought to dealer they repaced EGR, It ran fine for about 1,000 miles. Check engine light on again. Fault code P0404 again, called dealer they will look at it Friday. At this rate i will go threw alot of EGR valves. Why can't Dodge find a easier way than boogering on a conglomerate bunch of junk that just sotes up so fast. And should you have to change your spark plugs all the time your EGR boogers up.TIRED of IT. I wish those so called engineers could drive a rolling piece of crap to their important meeting of the minds. And have it stall in the middle of an intersection, while people are flicking them off. I need an aspirin. God help me!!

Starts sort of rough, gas smell,idles up and down while warming and shuts off at stop signs and stop lights until warmed up.
2007 Dodge Durango 75,000 mi,
Rough idle. Dealer did some "update" in response to but problem persists.
2004 Dodge Durango 100,000 mi,
After replacing sparkplug and O2 sensor at garage vehicle still had same problems. When you would let off the gas pedal even the slightest, the transmission would act like it was hesitating. Stopping at a stop sign would make the RPM'S drop. Not at first but eventually the vehicle started dying a few times a day when on the road, stopping or starting. Read online some and figured we would try replacing the EGR valve and if that didn't work take it to a dealer. Well, that fixed it. The EGR valve probably just needed cleaned but it was not very expensive and decided to put the new part on. This fixed the problem completely. Also the vehicle started have alot of rich fuel smell and the was using a tremendous amount of fuel. Hope this helps someone else out there. Thanks.
While driving down the road with air conditioning on the truck starts sputtering and stalls. Turn off the AC and it runs okay.

idling high and stalling out
2000 Dodge Durango 200,000 mi,
Rough idle, will also idle low and stall out while at stop signs/lights and while in park. Have to drive using both feet. Very occasionally will idle high. It's even worse with cheap gas, at one point high octane gas prevented the problem. Problem not fixed yet
