    I'm 99% certain it'll be a V6.

    For a '99 model, I'd think it's a V6 too. However, should be fairly simple to spot by just opening the bonnet and looking underneath surely!? :confused:

    Also, your V5 will give the engine code which will also unambiguously answer the question.

    WIS is the closest thing you'll get to a workshop manual.
