Question Asked: Why does the engine rpms flutter and sometimes won't throttle up enough to move

Especially while sitting and idleing I will notice the engine rpms fluttering and even while driving around town at half throttle I notice some fluctuation. Sometimes after stopping at a stop sign, it won't throttle up (no response on the footfeet pedal). Sometimes you are in the intersection before you know it's failing you, making for some dangerous situations and making other driver very mad at you. If you kill the engine or shut it off (in an attempt to reset the computer) it won't start again. Sometimes the engine code light comes on, and sometimes it doesn't. This problems has been going on for more than 2 years. I've had the pickup in 4 times and they replace turbos (twice), and egr vales (twice), but the problem keeps reacurring. It was it the Ford shop from Wednesday through Saturday last week and came home with a new egr valve and trubo. It sat in my garage over the weekend and on Monday after hooking it to my stock trailer and hauling 1 load of cattle, it was fouled up again and unuseable.
