The EGR valve can get clogged up with carbon and cause various driveability conditions. To long to explain here, but there are a couple to test you can do to check if the EGR is bad. Check the net, there are probably several "how to" articles showing you how to test it.
Note: The EGR on your vehicle is electronically operated. Use the testing procedure for that one. A replacement valve costs about a hundred bucks. So do the test before you spend the cash.
