Ok.. Is just the definition for your code.
The DPFEGR.. is a Little BOX. Black Colour.

SOURCE: P1404 error code
The PCM monitors the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve pintle position input to ensure that the valve responds properly to commands from the PCM. When the ignition switch is turned ON, the PCM learns the EGR learned minimum position. The PCM compares the EGR learned minimum position to the EGR position sensor when the EGR valve is commanded closed. If the EGR position sensor indicates that the EGR valve is still open when the PCM is commanding the EGR valve closed, this DTC will set.
Excess deposits on the EGR valve pintle or seat--Remove the EGR valve and check for deposits that may interfere with the EGR valve pintle extending completely or cause the pintle to stick.
Usually this will fix it but in some cases you may have to replace the egr valve.

This is the diagram but you should have factory belt diagram sticker is still somewhere under the hood
To replace the serpentine belt on a V6 3800 you must jack up the motor and remove a motor mount. You must then use a breaker bar with a socket (13/64") and pull it toward the front of the car to release the belt tensioner. Put the new belt on, tighten it, put the mount back on, and lower the jack.
Driving without a belt can cause the motor to overheat, will cut power steering, and will not recharge the battery, so you should probably get a tow

DTC P0101-P0103, P0107, P0108, P0121-P0123, P0130-P0138, P0140, P0141, P0201-P0206, P0300, P0401-P0405, P0410, P0440-P0446, P0506, P0507, P1404 or P1441 not set, engine started, vehicle driven at less than 82 mph at 550-4000 rpm, BARO sensor over 70 kPa (10.1 psi), ECT sensor from 68-230ºF, IAT sensor from 64-158ºF, MAF sensor from 2.8-150 gm/s, MAP sensor from 16-105 kPa (2.6-15.2 psi), fuel level over 10%, and the PCM detected the Long Term fuel trim value was more than +20% for 6 seconds. The PCM controls the air/fuel metering system to good overall fuel economy, driveability, and emission control. During open loop, the PCM determines fuel delivery based on sensor signals, without the oxygen sensor input. During closed loop, the PCM adds oxygen sensor inputs to calculate Short and Long term fuel trim fuel delivery adjustments. Short Term fuel trim values change rapidly in response to changes in the oxygen sensor signals. Long Term fuel trim makes coarse adjustments in order to maintain an air/fuel ratio of 14.7:1.
