If you have the 3.8L (Series II 3800) V6 that's the lower intake manifold. Unfortunately it's a big job to replace it. I'm sure you can get the manifold at the junk yard (2000 thru 2005 should work) but the plastic upper intake will need to be replaced as well as the gaskets. It's about a 6 hour job. Don't reuse the plastic upper intake manifold. They crack. If the eight character of your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) is the letter "K" you have the 3.8. HTH. -Jim
