with most front wheel drives you must remove the passenger tire and reach through to the starter bolt with an extension and if I remember write with a 15 mm socket you can reach through and take out the bolt

For the 2.8L there is no sequence. Torque for the bolts are 105 in.lbs.
For the 3.0L torque is 50 in.lbs. in sequence:
For the 3.3L and the 3.8L, no sequence but torque each bolt to 105 in.lbs.
Please don't forget to rate!

Looking at the engine from front (right side of the Van): Stating at the Top, Going Left to Right and Clockwise:
Over the Alternator
To under the Idle Pulley,
To Over the AC Compressor.
To the Left Side of the Water Pump.
To the Right side and Under the Crankshaft Pulley
To the Right side and Over and Down the Tensioner
To Under the Power Steering Pump
And Back up-to the Left side of the Alternator.
Advise when puting it on:
Put the Belt around everything else accept for the Alternator. After it is around all the rest of the Pulleys - Pull the belt up - tight from the Power steering Pump and the Idle Pulley to form a loop, holding the Belt close to the Altenator Pulley.
Using the 15mm wrench or belt tensioner bar - rotate the Tensioner Pulley towards the front of the Van and then place the belt over the Alternator.

SOURCE: bad oil leak around oil pan
This is what I found on my 1998 with a 3.0 motor
Most likely you have a rusted pan with a hole on the passenger side of pan, clean
the oil pan real good and inspect it real good and check for small
Also the transmission pan is also known to rust through on the left side top and bottom, Salt and brime plays heck on all pans and brake lines
