Two different V6's that year a 3.0 or a 3.8.

Best recollection, 3.0 is right in the front of the motor about in the middle under the exhaust manifold.

3.8 is on an angle roughly in the same place, more to the right.

Hopefully you have the 3.0 in this car, because the 3.8 is a collosal piece of junk riddled with problems .

It is my recollection that both engines use the FL400A.
