Welcome to PFF!
There is a good chance that changing the whole distributor will solve your problem (assuming it comes complete), but definitely post your results and let people here talk you through any further diagnosis. Hopefully collectively we can point you in the right direction and save you from throwing money at it.
As mentioned earlier in this thread, definitely take some time to change your fluids and check your seals. Sounds like you have sufficient fuel pressure to start and run the engine, but you may still want to use a fuel pressure gauge to confirm that you are getting the correct fuel pressure. I don't remember the exact spec for the V6 but it's quite high compared to the 4 cyl, and even a relatively low pressure can spray fuel up to the lid. If you have old gas in the tank you should pump it out and replace with fresh fuel. Use a bottle of fuel injector cleaner as well. That will help ensure that all injectors have a nice spray (of course never a guarantee...)
Good luck with it!
