Hey Guys,
I've read a lot about the EGR system on here. I've tried most if it and still have my rough idle issue. It does kick out a CEL light intermittently. Sometimes the light clears itself and sometimes I clear it manually. The code refers to the EGR system. First off, I've electrically tested the IAC and MAF sensor per Autozone website procedures and they work correctly. So I decided to change the EGR valve. In the process of that, I broke the EGR inlet tube, and EGR valve pressure sensor. All parts have been replaced with new parts. The inlet tube was loose and seemed to be cracked so I assumed this was my problem. Now that it's all changed, I stall have the rough idle when the car warms up, but the CEL hasn't come back on yet. I checked all hoses for blockage and they were all fine. The only thing left is the EGR Vacuum Solenoid. (EVR?) Would this cause the rough idle?? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks in advance!!
