Vin number decode
eg. 6H8VXX35F1L123456
6H8 = HOLDEN
VX= MODEL
X= LUXURY (K= EXEC, L= BERLINA, X= CALAIS)
35= BODY (69=WAGON, 35=SEDAN)
F= ENGINE (A=V6, F=V8 GEN3, R=V6 SUPER CHARGED)
1= YEAR (1=2001, 2=2002 ETC)
L123456= PRODUCTION NUMBER
If you have this code on the tag....

SOURCE: stuck front passenger seat - wont slide back or forwards due to small screw lodged in floor runner

Be there done that, but with a penny. All you can do is either get real aggressive with a hammer and long metal object as a punch or pull the seat. The seat should have 4 bolts. One at each end of each track. Ising a 1/4 in drive rachet and either a 1/2 or 9/16 socket should work. 1/4 in drive is low profile.. good luck

Hi there,

A P0300 diagnostic code indicates a "random" or "multiple" misfire.


Unfortunately, P0300 doesn't tell you specifically which cylinders are mis-firing, nor why (code P0301 would indicate cylinder #1; P0302 would indicate cylinder # 2 etc). This means there could be an issue with any number of components/circuits relating to the ignition/combustion circuits.


I would recommend you check for the following:

  • Faulty spark plugs and/or HT leads
  • Faulty coil (pack)
  • Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
  • Faulty fuel injector(s)
  • Burned exhaust valve
  • Faulty catalytic converter
  • Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages
  • Faulty camshaft position sensor

Sometimes the underlying cause of a random misfire is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold, unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or even an EGR valve which is stuck open.



Hope this helps...

What cuin, hp, trq, bore&stroke for this small blk 1995 chevrolet impala ss. casting #43006 below sg1 below h294. stamped #1sr177932 please


I don't think you have anything that will help in your search.
The 95 Impala SS came with a 350 cu in engine stock. The VIN code was P and the horsepower rating was 260. The casting number for that block would be something like 10199001 or 14101148. After 1970 GM started stamping a partial vin number on the blocks to match the original car. If you had the original car you could check the 8th digit of the VIN to verify the engine.

Need the login code for a 2000 vw beetle 1.8 turbo


If you mean the RADIO Anti-theft code: Look at the owners' manual, there should be a card in the jacket with "RADIO CODE" on it with the procedure to reset it. If that's not there, call your dealer, give them the VIN and they'll help you out Anytime the battery is disconnected (or real low) you will have to do this. Please tell if this worked! -Tom
