Look, please don't start new threads when you've already got one going. It
breaks the continuity, making it difficult to Google for this stuff after
the fact.

The error most likely means your EGR valve is stuck open due to carbon
deposits. The ECU is reporting incorrect valve lift for conditions.

Disable (or remove) EGR valve and block hole. Does rough running go away?
Then problem has been found.
