Did you test the solenoid? Did you clean the pintal? Did you inspect the EGR tube?

The pintel is the part the closes off the EGR. Look for cracks in the EGR tube.

If your still getting codes, and you have checked everything, you may need to just replace the EGR. It'* a simple set up, a tube from the exhaust manifold, a valve controlled by a solenoid, and another tube going in to your lower intake manifold. I have a whole EGR setup here if your interested.
