SOURCE: Reading the serial number from the VIN

OK, Ready?,,,, 1S53F100001
The 1 is the year, 71, a more detailed date code is stamped into the door panel, A letter in front of the year is the month, A = jan, etc, if it goes past M, then it is second year.
S,,assembly plant(Deerborn,)etc.
53 is the body style, 2 door, 4 door,etc
F is the engine code, 390, etc
the last six digits indicate the consecutive unit number, all cars made on the same assembly line were in the sequence, don't forget, the next number in the line could have been a maverick.
The rest of the VC label, notes all the other info, color code, trim, axel, and where it was shipped. The starting serial numbers were 100,001, with the T-bird, Mustang, Torino, and Maverick on the same line. I have a 1971 Ford shop manual here, volume 3, electrical, if you are interested, It is for sale. Hope this helps.

For automotive applications, the tenth digit is the code for year of manufacture, but automotive VINs are 17 characters in length. At the link, it states that 13 character VINs for John Deere are not coded for year of manufacture. You may have to check with your John Deere dealer for help.

I am trying to find out what size and year my engine is


Ok, no problem. Copy down your VIN number and go to a decoding site.
A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the string of 17 numbers and letters that an automobile manufacturer assigns to an individual vehicle. The VIN can reveal a number of things about a car, including its airbag type, country of origin, engine size, model year and trim level. The VIN also is key to car safety. By entering a VIN in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's free VIN Look-up Tool, you can see whether a vehicle is subject to a recall. Typically, the VIN is stamped into a plate that's mounted on the dashboard near the windshield or on the driver-side door jamb. It's also stamped on the engine's firewall.

Vin number location


Check the engine block area. Will not be a vin number but the block number should be able to be cross referenced by manufacture to vin number.

When was my car manufactured?


The vin number is the model year. If the door tag says manufactured in '06, usually given as month and year, would be actually manufactured in late '06 as an '07 model car. Actual date of manufacture is often important in ordering parts, as modifications can occur during that model year's production run.

If the car manufactured in 10/93, is this considered to be a 94? what is the manufactured cut-off date?


September is the norm for the new model year.

Sometimes there can be variation on the date.

There are three ways to tell what year your vehicle is.

1. The manufacture date which you have.
2. The 10 digit of the vin number. A "P" is a 93, an "R" is a 94.
3. There is an emissions sticker attached to the under side of the hood. It will say something to the effect "this vehicle meets federal emissions standards for the 1993 or 1994 model year"

If all else fails you can call your local Honda dealer and give them the VIN number and they will be able to determine the correct model year of your vehicle.

I need change the computer in my dodge caravan 1999 v6 3.8


this is a fairly simple job. The location of the unit varies within the same year make and model.
Take your vin number and ask the local deal about recalls and -- where the location of you vehicle computer is - sometimes these are called brain boxes by dealers - - once located you will have little problem in removing and replacing the unit.

How to read a VIN
1st character- Identifies the country in which the vehicle was manufactured.
For example: U.S.A.(1or 4), Canada(2), Mexico(3), Japan(J), Korea(K), England(S), Germany(W), Italy(Z)
2nd character- Identifies the manufacturer. For example; Audi(A),
BMW(B), Buick(4), Cadillac(6), Chevrolet(1), Chrysler(C), Dodge(B),
Ford(F), GM Canada(7), General Motors(G), Honda(H), Jaquar(A), Lincoln(L), Mercedes Benz(D), Mercury(M), Nissan(N), Oldsmobile(3), Pontiac(2or5), Plymouth(P), Saturn(8), Toyota(T), VW(V), Volvo(V).
3rd character- Identifies vehicle type or manufacturing division.
4th to 8th characters- VDS - Vehicle Descriptor Section. These 5 characters occupy positions 4 through 8 of the VIN and may be used by the manufacturer to identify attributes of the vehicle. Identifies vehicle features such as body style, engine type, model, series, etc.
9th Character - The check digit "character or digit 9" in the sequence of a vehicle identification number (VIN) built beginning with model year 1981 (when the 17 character digit format was established) can best be described as identifying the VIN accuracy.
A check digit shall be part of each vin (since 1981) and shall appear in position
nine (9) of the VIN on the vehicle and on any transfer documents containing
the vin prepared by the manufacturer to be given to the first owner for purposes
other than resale. Thus, the VINs of any two vehicles manufactured within a 30
year period shall not be identical. The check digit means a single number or letter
"x" used to verify the accuracy of the transcription of the vehicle identification
number.
After all other characters in the VIN have been determined by the manufacturer
the check digit is calculated by carrying out a mathematical computation
specified. This is based on vin position, sample vin, assigned value code,
weight factor and multiply assigned value times weight factors. The values are added and the total is divided by 11. The remainder is the check digit number.
The correct numeric remainder - zero through nine (0-9) will appear.
However, if the remainder is 10 the letter "X" is used to designate the check
digit value/number.
10th character- Identifies the model year. For example: 1988(J), 1989(K), 1990(L), 1991(M), 1992(N), 1993(P), 1994(R), 1995(S), 1996(T),
1997(V), 1998(W), 1999(X), 2000(Y)------2001(1), 2002(2), 2003(3)
11th character- Identifies the assembly plant for the vehicle.
12th to 17th characters- VIS - Vehicle Identifier Section. The last 8 characters of the VIN are used for the identification a of specific vehicle. The last four characters shall always be numeric. Identifies the sequence of the vehicle for production as it rolled off the manufacturers assembly line.

Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) are used to uniquely identify motor vehicles. Prior to 1980 there was not an accepted standard for these numbers, so different manufacturers used different formats. Modern day VINs consist of 17 characters that do not include the letters I, O or Q.

It's all in the VIN.

A car’s vehicle identification number (VIN) is the automotive equivalent of
