Question about 2001 Lincoln LS
Car(when cold)has to be idled or it will die(unless ran for a while)...is it the EGR valve ???
Difficult to say,so many things effect the idle.Throttle position sensor,also the egr position sensor,and the mass air flow sensor for just some of the reasons.Check the air filter for blockage first off.Remove the mass air flow and inspect it for forgien matterial that might caught in the sensor.Any check engine lights on?If so,a code reader might give you an idea where to look for the problem.Some parts stores will offer to do this at no cost.But check with a mechanic before you purchase a part from them,to see what you choices are.The coolant sensor would be my first guess,sense the idle does fine after warm up.This tells me the sensor may be out of range,not sensing cold coolant.Let me know how you come out,Let me know if this helps you at all.
