Does your civic idle high then go low to where your engine has a hard time staying on?

My 03 civic, engine light came. Never flickered. But my idle high then went low and stalled. Spent over $400 in mechanic diagnostics. Then come to find out it was my egr valve. I replaced it. And my car ran great since then
