i need to no what kind of car if it is a Ford change tube and check intake hole under egr Yoah, Rob, it's a 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, says so in the question. A PO401 code doesn't usually mean there is a malfunction in the EGR valve. It often means there is an electrical problem with the EGR to PCM circuit or other sensors. If you have a scanner you can run a complete diagnostic yourself. If not, you will need a garage or dealer to run it for you.

Normally it will last the life of the engine and is changed when the engine is overhauled.
That would be a judgment call on what the old belt looked like.
The engine oil should be changed every 3000-5000 miles
The chain should last the life of the engine.The chain should last the life of the engine.
Gear oil should be changed every 4,000 to 5,000 miles. Motor oil should be changed every 3,000 miles to keep the engine running clean.
If the cam belt snaps while the engine is running - its bye bye engine, as the valves and pistons will collide, causing major damage.

You should always replace the timing chain, tensioners and sprockets whenever you rebuild the engine.

You cannot tell by looking at it. For this reason it must be changed at a set time period of miles or years. Without knowing the make, model, engine, & year I cannot tell you when it should be changed. Warning: If the engine is an interference engine and the belt breaks you will have internal engine damage.
Every 300 hours.
The cam belt should be changed on a Mitsubishi Triton diesel engine when it becomes worn down. If it wears down too thin, it can break and cause driving issues.
spark plugs are irridum and should be changed at 90-100k, trans fluid should be changed every 30k, coolant should be changed every 30k, srep belt should be changed when it starts cracking or starts to squeek
cam belt should be changed at 50,000 miles and not a mile more. cam belt brakage on this engine is very expensive.

NO, That should last the life of the engine.
When the engine is getting a complete rebuild.
Of course there will be permanent damage its just a matter of how much. If the engine stopped it may be that the engine has seized. If that's the case you are going to have to get a new/rebuilt engine and if you went somewhere to have your oil changed and they did this you should go and have them pay for it.
It should be changed every 60,000 miles. I am not sure if it is an interference engine or not.
Timing chains should last the life of the engine and are normally replaced when the engine is rebuilt.
typically no it should be hydraulic lifters unless someone has changed the cam and lifters in the engine.
No, you are extremely lucky as this is not an interference engine. Belt should be changed every 60,000 miles.
it has to be reset if you disconnect the battery for a few minutes should do it
The 3.8 liter V6 engine has a timing CHAIN
