Hello, is this the dual overhead 24 valve cam engine or the 12 valve engine?
If it was a dual overhead cam engine it would say it on the body and a 24 valve emblem on the front fender. If you post the 17 digit VIN I can check
Is the 8th digit of the vin number an S, U or a 2?
Hello? There are different oil pans, based on the type of engine
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer working afternoon till just after midnight.
On the 24 valve engine the longer bolts connect the pan to the transaxle.

Hello again Chris here,
I am contacting you because the post has not been closed out. We have 7 days to get a confirmation that my help assisted you, or the post times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears you're not pleased, or need more help.
Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. I have the option to call you if that would be better.
