My sincere apologies for the severly delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions. I have only been on this site for the past 4-months as a free contributor.
I do not know if you still need this information, however I am answering it in case you still do.
Standard Answer for Timing Belts/Chains: 100,000 to 120,000 miles is when the Timing Belts/Chains start malfunctioning or failing. Some people want to go ahead and change them before malfunctions/failures happen. I just replaced mine on 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan which just turned 100K. Most Timing Belt/Chain failures will cause more costly engine damage when these fail, including a need to replace/rebuild an entire engine.
Again my apologies...
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

The EGR valve will be mounted on the intake manifold, and may have either wiring or a vacuum hose attached to it. Type 'EGR valve' into Google images, and you will see what it looks like.

You may have a EGR valve plugged exhaust gas passage, so when it is opened the systems computer doesn't see any change in the O2 signal voltage. To check this manually pull open the EGR valve, the engine should run very rough and will stall out most times, if you open the valve up and see no change in the engine idle the passages are plugged with carbon and must be cleaned. As long as you have this EGR problem the car will not pass smog.

Just remove the valve from the engine, two bolts on most and use a piece of brass shim stock (available from auto parts stores like NAPA) and cut a block off gasket to go under the valve. Use the old gasket as a template but of course don't cut the hole that exhaust gas goes through in the shim stock. The shim stock comes in various thicknesses so ask the parts counter person which would work best, around .006" should be fine as far as thickness goes. You can also use a soda can for the metal, but it may not last very long.

In fixing this code, it is quite common for people to just replace the EGR valve only to have the OBD code return. The EGR valve is not always the culprit.
