Sounds like the EGR valve is opening at idle. It shouldn't. Remove the vacuum hose at the EGR valve and start the engine. It'll probably run fine. Now check for vacuum at the hose with the engine at idle. If you have vacuum, either the EGR solenoid is stuck open or the vacuum hose is misrouted and connected directly to intake manifold vacuum.

You're welcome. Glad to help. With the vacuum hose off the EGR valve should be closed. Especially if it's brand new. If it's still not running correctly at idle with the vacuum hose off something else is going on. Did you replace the EGR valve gasket when you installed the new EGR valve? HTH. -Jim

Do you have spark? Try spraying some starting fluid down the throttle body. It should run a few seconds on that. If so, it's a fuel problem. If not check for spark. If you have spark and fuel you need to run a compression test. You can also try holding the accelerator to the floor while cranking. This puts the computer in clear flood mode. If it's just flooded it should start. HTH. -Jim
