YOU NEED TO DISCONNECT THE BATTERY FOR 5-10 MINUTES FOR FAULTS TO CLEAR COMPLETELY..HAVE SEEN THIS PROBLEM BEFORE AFTER REPLACING AN EGR VALVE..IT WAS A TECH TIP FROM CHRYSLER ENGINEERING..THE EGR VALVE WAS THE PROBLEM,BUT THE PCM WOULD NOT LET THE CODES GO EVEN AFTER CLEARING THEM WITH SCAN TOOL..ALSO CHECK CONNECTIONS AT EGR CONNECTOR FOR SPREAD PINS

Remove the throttle body housing on the top of the intake, it is a 90 degree tunnel like small piece held by 4 small bolts, turn it over and look for two holes, these holes are for the EGR valve flow, they are probably plugged up with carboned crud, clean them out with the tip of a screwdriver if neccessary to remove all the crud, once its clean reinstall it and reset your check engine light, hope this helps, let me know

SOURCE: Just replaced EGR hose &
OK, if you replaced the EGR hose, did you go all the way to change the EGR Valve? A stuck open EGR Valve can cause a rough idle and almost make it cut off.
Also, a vacuum leak on the EGR valve can cause a rough idle.

The aluminum threads on the EGR valve must be inspected, and a new EGR valve installed if the threads are damaged.
