Ford Taurus question

I am visiting California and my dad recieved from his dad a 93 Ford Taurus 6 cyl.he car runs and looks great and has 102 thousand miles on it.
My question is does this car have a timing belt or chain?he has no manual with it since he got the car in an inheratince.

Both the 3.0 vin U and the 3.8 vin 4 use chains.

The tranny is the sore spot on these as they fail like gangbusters. On the 3.8, the head gaskets blow frequently.

Since he got it as an inheritance, do just basic TLC and upkeep and drive it till it pukes.
