having this problem right now. its hard to control the car when this happens and the mechanic can't fix it unless I can get it there so he can see/hear it. it usually dies down by the time I get there, but it returns randomly.
Harsh start egr sticking open can't solve disfunction. I did a parsidic draw test and found out it was my comfort fuse draining my battery. Well, I started pulling it every night and everything was working good new egr valve and battery give or take 2 months car starts acting up even with fuse pulled.
