I do have a 1993 Camry 300sei (v6) Is the 1994 model the same?


This engine will probably have a cast iron block, painted black. Depending on which country you are in, some year from 1994 on Toyota changed the V6 to a design with an aluminium block, the 1MZ engine. So have a look to see what the engine block is made of.

LOCATION ON ENGINE NUMBER OF KIA SPORTAGE 2005 MODEL


Find the engine identification tag. Attached at the factory, this tag is normally found on the engine block around the coil bolts. The top line of the tag identifies engine size and model year.

Search the block for the engine block casting number. The numbers are raised, not stamped into the block and consist of seven numeric digits. The digits can be located on either side of the block. The seven-digit number may be followed with a dash and further numbers. These are change codes and are not normally necessary to identify the engine.

EX.:

Locate the casting date is located on the block. It is in standard date coding, 2.25.93, for example and may be located on either side of the block, but is commonly located on the driver's side of the block, above the freeze plugs. The example 2.25.93 decodes as February 25, 1993. The casting date may be near the casting clock, which designates the hour the block was cast. Magnum engines were manufactured from 1993 to 2002, so verifying the date code helps identify the engine.

Where is the block heater cord on the 2004 kia sorento?


Are you sure it has a block heater on it? The plug is usually around the front grill but unless someone added it as an aftermarket option, it probably doesn't have one.

Good Luck
