Ford E-150 stumbles when accelerating gradually

My van stumbles & hesitates when I am gradually accelerating up a hill. It does not happen if I accelerate quickly or on level ground. It only happens going up hills slowly. It can be very violent.

Disconnect your EGR valve and see if that cures it…If so, replace the sensor that controls the valve and or remove the valve and clean it…
