Your diagram seems different than my engine:

Facing the engine, the alternator is at the top left of center. Below it to the right is the water pump, and to the right of that is the pwr steering. Right below that is the air cond. comprssor. To the left of the air comp. is the crank pully; above that is the tensioner/idler, and to the left of that is , I believe, is the smog pump. Your diagram unfortunately, doesn't fit.

No problem,

I didnt show the # XXXXX in my listing, i had a #4 and being that number was right next to the 2, i thought you maybe were off by on the count...


Is this the 3.0 or 3.8L engine

Customer: replied 9 years ago.
This vehicle has a 3.0 liter engine, and if it matters any, it is also designated as aFFV (Flexible Fuel Vehicle)

graphicYour not gonna believe this, here are the 4,,,yes 4 options for the 3.0 lol...

I have a SE model pluged in, what model is yours?

Customer: replied 9 years ago.
My car is an SE model. Also, this is a California car, if possibly the pulley arrangement is different due to our more stringent Smog rules.

I found it!!


According to this your 8th digit should be a "U"



Sorry for the hassle, some special car you have there!!
