Re: 08 Hemi Shutting Off

Could the EGR give me these symptoms?
My EGR is normally closed at idle or when accelerator is released. There are PID's (parameter ID's) for OBD-II that can show commanded EGR position, actual EGR position, and % error between the 2. Have to see if it is hanging up (ie, open) at idle or no throttle; that could cause stalling issue.
Mine was going out at 45K miles but it never stalled before or after changeout. Just lackluster performance, bad fuel mileage, and MDS failure.
