I don't think it would start if the egr was stuck. Deffinetly would idle and run like crap. You could always pull the valve and check it out tho and clean it up. Sounds like the turbo tho.

Black smoke? If so, definitely check the EGR valve.

Try the cheapest (free) fix first. Pull the EGR valve using a length of strong wire and a lifting lever. Carefully clean it. Do not get solvent in the holes on the under side. Carefully push it open with a big screwdriver. Lube it a little with 2-stroke outboard motor oil. When you are done, that EGR valve should shine, open and close easily and seat completely. Good luck.
