Where is the vehicle engine number

It is in the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) located by your inspection sticker in the windshiled, it is a little riveted plate on the corner of the dash below the windshield and in the corner - can only be viewed from outside.
The engine code is a particular digit, it's the 8th digit on your VIN.
If you call any parts store or the dealer they can tell you what engine is in your vehicle by that digit. They can also give you a spare key (at a price) if you ever lose your key, only need identification, your registration and usually 50. to $200 if you have a chip in your key. Just saying...
Go to this website I found through a google search and enter your VIN (which is also on the Registration) and this site says it will give you info on your car.

Good luck, hope this helps

Lost ignition key to 1989 gmc truck

If all you did was lose the key, copy down your vehicle identification number (VIN) which is on the dash, and take it and your registration and personal identification to the dealer to prove you are the owner. They can look up what you need and make you a key. :)

I ran over my ignition key and need the number to replace it. The key was totally destroyed & I need the key number to replace my ignition key.

on most models the number is also on the glove box lock, so check there, also any dealership can make a key by only using your vin number! no car or key need be present. though they will likely ask to see proof of registration so they know its a legal request and you're not trying to steal your neighbors car. if a dealer says they can't make one from the vin... they are straight up liars and I would not go there anymore.

I lost my keys to my 1990 Mazda Miata. Can you tell me how to replace them?

The first thing to try is to go to your local Mazda dealer service department, and usually they can make a key for you off of your VIN number. Call to see what they need from you to do that, such as registration or other paperwork.
My wife locked her purse in our car with the engine running, when we were out of town, and the local dealer helped us out in about an hour!

If they can't help you, then you are at the mercy of a locksmith.

Lost keys need to make a new key

Hi my name is Allen!

Have you tried the Dealership, give them your vin number and they should be able to cut you a key through the code book, just tell them you lost your keys.

I would have the ignition itself replaced. These go out all the time and will leave you stranded. Get a new ignition keyed to your current key and you won't have to do programming. A locksmith can do this for you. Do it soon though before it stops turning.
