Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
when cool car stops every time at about 3 to 5 miles. seems like loading up. will restart and after about 5 restarts will start running more normal. gas mileage down about 4 to 5 miles per gallon. had new egr added and ran great for about three weeks then started same thing again.

check engine light will normally come on sometime during drive. has uaually indicated egr. not always on when car seems to overload and stop. horrible exaust or engine smell when first restarting which usually takes agout 4 or five times while coasting or stopped.

KNOW HOW TO DO THIS. STILL MAY BE EGR RELATED.
start with basic checks. fuel pressure, spark check. one of them will be missing and then we can focus on that system
