How Do You Know What Engine Number Is in Your Car?
The engine number is located on the engine block of the vehicle, although the engine number location varies depending on the type of engine. To find the location, refer to the owner’s manual of the vehicle, or use a paid online resource such as Identicar.
To find vehicle information using Identicar, enter the make and model of the vehicle, or search by VIN or engine code. Identicar provides information such as engine number location, chassis number and VIN location, tire size and track. To find an owner’s manual online, visit the manufacturer’s website, or visit Edmunds.com. Online vehicle manuals are downloadable as e-books or PDF files and are usually exact copies of the physical manual.
