1991 5.0 missing running rough and oil loss


I have a 1991 4x4 5.0 with an E4OD transmission 115,000 +_ miles. The truck has a miss that has gotten worse. I have changed plugs , wires rotor and cap. In addition I have replaced the vacuum reservoir that was shot, cleaned the throttle body , changed the fuel filter etc. I have had the codes pulled and I have got the following : 328,(EGR ) evap voltage, 332 EGR not opening, 542, Fuel pump ground and 634 Manual Lever Position Sensor. In addition to the missing I have found oil in the air cleaner, I replaced the PCV valve with a Motorcraft one when i discovered the oil issue. My question is this is the ERG issue causing both the missing and the oil in the air cleaner issues? or do I have more than one thing going one? I have the correct voltage ( 5.0) at the EGR sensor but I have not been able to test the sensor yet.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Those definitions aren't accurate or complete; read this caption:

Don't pick the name of a part out of the definition - read & post the WHOLE thing. The EGR can't cause oil in the filter, and it can only cause a miss near idle; not at highway speed. Read these captions:
