RockAuto.com shows four possible engines. One 4 cyl diesel, two 4 cyl gas and one V6 gas

The 8th character of your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) will tell you. This number can be found on your title, registration, & insurance card. HTH. -Jim

Since the only V6 engine that came in the car (the 2.8L 171cid V6 OHV)- maybe looking at a number on the VIN isn't necessary.
