Let me put it too you this way. After 40+ years of garage ownership the 0 RPM condition has to do with something in the clutch set up. Yes an EGR valve that needs cleaning has to do with erratic idle.
I would clean the EGR orfices as well as the throttle body. It too can cause erratic idle. Use a small tooth brush and carb cleaner in the throttlebody. The engine will idle a little rough after a start because of injecting the cleaner.
Once the erattic idle is stabilized and the RPM stills goes to 0 you have a clutch problem
