A defective EGR can cause a stall, do u have a fault vcode for the EGR, does it get real hot at idle, enough to burn u? have u tired blocking the valve off and see if symptom goes away, have you cleaned the idle air control valve?

Tips for a great answer:
Engine stall or RPM fluctuates
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
