I’m looking under the hood and I notice it’s a v6 and I think it’s missing some stuff I’m fairly sure a battery is missing.I haven’t started it but I’m fairly sure more is wrong with it than it seems.

Hello,

If you can upload some pictures of the engine area that will surely help.
But first of all you need to get a battery for this vehicle. That will be step one. Then you need to see if the electronics power up and if you are able to start. But before doing that you want to check the engine oil and other fluids to verify the correct level.
Here is few good articles to get you going:

Keep me posted of any concerns.

Thank you.
