As long as the heads are not damaged from overheating repairing would be an option rather than replacing the engine. Get advise from a mechanic you trust. The intake manifold gaskets are the most common problem with this vehicle if you have the V6 engine.

It's usually top of the suspect list, A simple few checks will verify, Remove all spark plugs , examine their colour and the faulty cylinder will be a greyish colour compared to the others , rear cyl ie No 4 or No 6 are the hottest cylinders and most likely you problem . A compression test will also confirm,
Looking into coolant header tank (CAUTION HOT) while the vehicle is idling , you may see bubbles in the coolant and sign of comperssion gasses leaking into water jacket / cyl head . Good luck
