JTD jerky moves - constant acceleration


For some time I face a persistent and nagging problem: my car goes jerky / interrupted.

The "show" starts just after the engine started to warm up(after 2 minutes of driving). . The range that feels badly is around 2200 rpm, and under 2000rpm. I repeat, ONLY if i maintain constant throttle or accelerate very very smooth.If i accelerate, disappear, but reappears if i keep again constant.

No lose of power.

I made several tests and replacement of parts with no effects :
- I cleaned and blocked EGR-> no change (EGR functional so I left, I removed the lock plate) - in FiatEcuScan shows that it's working
- MAF, just stands in the tester parameters, no symptoms of a dead sensor
- MAP - cleaned / replaced with a Facet new one, but no change, so i put back the old Bosch.
- I replaced the crankshaft sensor with a genuine BOSCH
- Changed the fuel filter
- I have no hose broken
- i shift over 2500rpm after the engine warmed
- no lights on dash

Any ideas or opinions are welcome, I have no idea what to check anymore.

THE problem lies in the interrupt on of signal of your EGR valve, shut it off mechanicaly and with software and you will have no more problems anymore.
