Hi there. Since you have a code for the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR), the EGR could act like a vacuum leak and cause a random misfire. Remove the EGR and clean it out and then put it back on. If the symptom gets better but the engine still has a misfire, then I recommend replacing the EGR valve. The EGR valve will cause the O2 sensors to register to the computer and set a code for the O2 sensors. This is normal for the O2 sensors to work. For the EVAP issue, check the gas cap and make sure that the seal is good. Also, check the purge valve on the fuel system and see if its plugged in. Most of the time the valve gets stuck and needs replaced. If you need further assistance with your engine having a misfire, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
