Try cleaning the EGR valve first
electronic Tempture Control
Symptoms of a P0118 could include:
* Very poor fuel economy
* A no start condition
* Vehicle may start, but run very poorly, blowing black smoke, running very rough and misfiring
* Illumination of MIL
Usually a fault in the control circuit, will leave no noticeable symptoms other than the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illumination. However, if the EGR control solenoid
is stuck open due to debris, etc. the code may be accompanied by misfire under acceleration, rough idle, or engine dying altogether.

SOURCE: running rough
If your car is running rough and it's fuel injected (which yours is). Follow the air intake (black plastic box - housing the air filter that has tubing that goes to the motor) until it reaches the Throttle body (rounded metal air intake at the end of the plastic tube - has one large flap inside). You will want to remove the hose clamp and thoroughly clean the throttle body and the AIC (air idle control valve - small canister attached to the throttle body). Use off-the-shelf cleaner from any automotive store. This takes about 30mins to 1hr depending on your skill level. This will result in a cleaner smother idle and smoother performance. This is a common issue in today's cars. I have to do this once a yr to keep my modified car running happy.
