    Dealer probably didn't know the difference! Had rather have the 3.1, i think it's a better engine!! Thay don't seem to have as many head gasket problems as the 3.4 so consider yourself lucky! Hey it was replaced for 'some' reason!!!!!! Also, NO it is not fraud, UNLESS it was put in writing, for some odd reason, that everything was original equipment at the time of sale. 1998, i figure it wasn't! While we are at it, you can't be SURE it's not a 3.4 with a 3.1 intake plenum, unless the engine serial number is researched! Just drive it and enjoy!
