17 ft/lbs will cover all of the bolts listed. 14-19 is actual specs. Never pulled an oil pan on a 3.0l of that year. Sure it is not the front cam/crank seals? Leak from there should be visible at the lower sides of the timing covers. Have replaced more of these for oil leaks more than can shake a stick at. Somtimes looks like pan leak as the oil follows the gasket surface around the pan.

Front cam seals will show leakage at the very front of the engine near the plastic timing covers. Look above the front crankshaft pulley on the sides of the engine. If oil is found above the oil pan line then you probably have front cam and-or crank seals leaking

Had a 95 v6 in today with front seals leaking on right side. Will see if I can send picts for you. If two picts dont post them let me know how to do it as I never have.
