Default 3800 Engine diagram?

Is there an explanatory diagram of a 3800 Series II engine (in my 96 SE)? I'd like to be able to identify all of the parts of the engine, so I can know which areas to avoid when I'm pressure washing and I'd just like to know anyway, in case they need to be replaced. Thanks!

So what is the best way to avoid these parts? Should I put plastic bags on them?

everything under the hood can get wet but use some common sense. Don't put the tip in front of the alternator and blast away. Try not to use alot of pressure anyway. use a good degreaser (simple green for example), let soak alittle, and rinse off. SOme people say to cover alt and icm, but it'* not necessary.

and bring some belt dressing along to stop the squeal that will most likely happen after a wet down

Your best bet would be to buy a Factory Service Manual. I got one off ebay for $25 shipped. They're usually closer to $50-75, but they're worth every penny.
