Is the egr a Oem? Or cheap version?

I really don't know,it was replaced before I got it. I do have a cheapo scanner that can clear codes. so i have cleared it and the cel comes back usually within 50 miles of travel.

There are a few vacuum hoses that go to the EGR valve and BPT valve that controls it. Make sure those are all connected and not split or broken.
The fuel fill issue is sometimes caused by a stuck vent valve on the filler tube.

On the egr what everyone has said or the transducer for it.

You should hear a click from the EGR solenoid just below the EGR valve, then see the EGR diaphragm move.
If you do not hear the click, then chances are the solenoid is defective.
If you DO hear the click, but the diaphragm does NOT move, then use a vacuum gauge to follow the hoses back through the BPT ( back pressure transducer ) to the ported outlet on the intake manifold.
IF you hear the click AND have vacuum at the EGR, then it is either stuck ( remove and clean the pintle at the bottom ) or the diaphragm is leaking. Either way replacing it should fix it.
MOST TIMES, I have found either a clogged port, or the solenoid inlet/outlet is clogged.
