Default Re: Odd Engine Questions

The "forged internals" question in regards to AWD is a myth. The engines aren't changed between FWD and AWD models, just the transfer cases attached to the transmissions...

That engine looks to be very old, probably pre-2004 if I had to guess. The cast in header was a later model thing, and all V6 Vues have it.

Has anybody been able to go and find the block casting on their vue to see if it is just J35A or J35A4? ... or possibly something else?
