I have the check engine light on, when I put it on my scanner
it was pinpointing lean sytem
the egr valve is working, Ive cleaned the carbon out, the sensor was changed and now I was looking to replace the fuel filter, to see if it corrects the problem.

You can rent a fuel pressure gauge at auto zone.I would be looking for a vacuum leak. Let the engine idle and take some carb cleaner and spray it around all vacuum sources intake gasket hoses etc. If the idle goes up down stumbles or dies you found a leak.A vacuum leak will set those lean codes.
