2001 pt cruiser: solenoid..EGR valve..rough idle..the throttle body

Customer Question

I have a 2001 pt cruiser, trouble code P0403 which is the code for a "open or shorted condition detected in EGR solenoid control circuit." I replaced the EGR valve and test drove it, had rough idle, and the solenoid malfunctioned again. Tried cleaning the throttle body and replaced the EGR valve again, no rough idle but car stalled on right turn as I test drove it, as I was returning home from test drive I heard a slight hiss (indicating the EGR malfunctioned again), the same problem keeps happening over and over Im stumped, any suggestions? (Cruiser @ 136k)
