    Engine runs rough wont idle in drive

    1. replaced the air filter
    2. replaced the PCV valve
    3. inspected the PCV hose and connectors (nothing wrong)
    4. ran a tank of gas with fuel injector cleaner
    5. tested the EGR valve by pulling the vacuum hose off the top, and blocking the hose. The idle didn't smooth out. I applied a vacuum to the EGR valve manually and the car immediately stalled which tells me that the EGR valve itself is working fine.
