EGR stands for exhaust gas recirculation. It recerculates exhaust gas back into the combustion chamber to take up space and to cool cylinder temperature. A plugged or inoperative egr valve can cause stalling or hesitation when driving, but will generally trigger a MIL ( malfunction indicator lamp).

my 97 Plymouth Grand Voyager used to stall when I backed out of my driveway and would also stall comming to a stop light or stop sign. Remedied it by replacing the EGR Vacuum Valve little black round disc looking thing that attaches to the intake located just to the left of the brake fluid resevoir (three vacuum lines and an electrical connector holds it in place) Yw Kevin C.

it sounds as tho you might have taken some water in the air intake, take the spark plugs out and turn it over for about 20 seconds then put them back in and try it again, also some easy start through the intake whilst trying to start it after step one may assist it
check the wiring harness on top of the transmission for rubbing thru and shorting, there is a bracket the harness attaches to near the battery and most of the time when the transmission is removed people forget to clip it back in place or the clips break and it will rub on the shifter shaft and arc out when the tranny is shifted in certin gears or when the engine moves while driving, sounds like this could be your problem good luck and dont forget to rate this, -jeff
