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.
Dies at any stop or normally when I 1st put it in drive
I had the throttle clean new Egr new idle control valve new plug
