Rough Idle Caused By EGR Sensor Sticking on Ford F-150

Intermittent rough idle may be caused by the EGR sensor sticking, causing the EGR valve to stay slightly open. Our technicians tell us the valve and sensor must be replaced together to correct this concern.

After I have driven a while and stop at a stop light the truck would idle rough. We could put it in neutral and it would subside. I have had the egr tube replaced and will see if that takes care of it.
im not sure if my problem is this or not but lately my truck will stall if it is ideling or i am slowing down. It usually only happens also if i have the air conditioning on.

Idle surging after engine is warm. The surging will stop once I start to drive but when I come to a stop or put it in park the surging starts again.
