2000 SL1
Default 2000 SL1 SES with codes HELP

Hello everyone. I stumbled across this site while looking up some information about the three codes that came up this week. Gotta say I love the expertise that I have found in just a short time while searching this site so I decided to post a new thread. Here goes.

Recently performed general maintainence on my 2000 SL1 because it was due and seemed to be idling heavy. Oil change w/filter, new spark plugs w/wire harnesses, new air filter and coolant/radiator purged and refilled. Now for the problems.

1. Engine still seems to vibrate too much during idle. For such a small engine it shouldn't vibrate the car like it does.
2. Occasionally switches to a high idle (3.5k) after car is put into park from drive.
3. Recently coded P0442-EVAP Emission Control Leak (Small), P0404-EGR FLow CKT Range/Perf, & P0442-EVAP Emission Control Leak (Small).

Obviously the first and third code are the same but I'm wondering about a couple things. First, could these codes be linked to a single problem and second, would these problems cause the high/rough idle that I'm experiencing. Also, I will be doing the work myself so any ideas on what I need to do would help. Thanks for any help everyone.
