Egr has nothing to do with your vehicle turning over hard.connections, battery, and starter are what you want to look at.

Battery good ? Cables an connections ? Why are you using jumper cables ? Engine not cranking over fast enought ? Electrical problems ? Need more info. ? When you turn the key to start position does the starter spin the motor ? Voltage drop test starter electrical circuit .
Starter Voltage Drop
This needs more clarification put new egr valve on but still difficult to start What does the egr have to do with it ? Does the motor turn over normally ? Fuel delivery problem ? mass air flow sensor problem ? Test fuel pressure with a pressure gauge , an flow test as well . Try spraying starting fluid or carb cleaner into the engine to see if it starts quicker .

Rough idle problem


could be a vacuum leak at a hose or gasket. with the engine running spray a little carb spray at the intake manifold area. if the idle picks up you are close to the vacuum leak. dont spray on the exhaust manifold area, be careful

Idle is rough


Spark Plugs have to be changed every 3 years
Front Oxygen Sensors changed every 100,000 miles
Can't have any Vacuum Leaks -- anywhere on the vehicle
Need to have it road tested with a Professional Scan Tool
& look at all data & get caught up on Preventative Maintenance
Very few people change motor oil 3 or 4 times a year, if at all,
and the Variable Cam Actuators fail, as a result,that & few other
things can cause rough running engine & resulting idle issues
It's well known that Ford COP Ignition Coils fail sometime in
every year of ownership

2006 f350 6.0 powerstroke diesel missing. help


there is no wastegate on a 6.0l turbo. its a variable geometry turbocharger and doesn't need it. i have never seen a turbocharger cause a misfire, the turbocharger is most likely not your problem. if you didn't clean the intake out when replacing the egr valve there is a really good chance that the egr is bad again. also, a bad egr cooler can cause repeat egr failure. also, fuel injector control module is a common cause for misfire

Make sure you have good clean connections from battery to starter and ground. If all okay, you may want to have a starter draw test performed.
