2V and 4V are the different motor types.

Your VIN will dictate what motor you have. 8th digit. u=2v , 1 or a 2=2v also. s=4v.

Vulcan is the U, 1, 2 codes
Duratec is the S code.

You have a 3.0 Liter 12Valve (2 valves per cylinder) OHV (overhead valve) Vulcan engine.

The V stands for valve. The 3.0L OHV Vulcan V6 (VIN U) has two valves per cylinder, so it is designated 2V. The 3.0L DOHC Duratec V6 (VIN S) has four valves per cylinder, so it's called the 4V engine.

Your VIN letter is U, so you have the 2V engine.
