check egr valve

Wouldn't think a faulty egr would be to blame... Mine is blocked of and runs fine and before would leak frequently causing it to rapidly increase rpm... check injector for even spray pattern... maybe throttle position sensor... or maybe MAP sensor... also check all vacuum lines as a vacuum leak may make the engine think it's getting more air than it actually is.
