  • Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! What exactly is your question here? Are you wondering what you're doing wrong? Or how to get it together? You aren't specifically stating what you're wanting to know, so any answer I would give you would be a stab in the dark. This is the 3.5L V6, correct? Feb 13 at 0:34
