pure functions (or not?)

Hi there,

I have a problem with functions.
Why is the following not working :
In[1]:=
function[{x_,y_,z_}]:=
Module[{a,fr},fr=FindRoot[z+x*Sin[a]-y*a,{a,1.1}];fr[[1,2]]]

In[2]:=
function[{-1,-2,3}]

Out[2]=
-1.96219

In[3]:=
ContourPlot[function[{x,y,3}],{x,-2,2},{y,0,2},Contours->{0}]

In[4]:=
<<Graphics`ContourPlot3D`
In[5]:=
ContourPlot3D[function[{x,y,z}],{x,-2,2}, {y,0,2}, {z,-2,2}]


---------------------------
The contourplot3d doest NOT work. Even if I add
COMPLIED->TRUE.

Thanks for any help or explanation,

Seb
