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.

Was there a bulletin issued to extend a warranty for spark plug wires, maybe #10250

Yes....10 years or 120,000 miles
Some customers of 2007-2009 model year Chevrolet Equinox and Pontiac Torrent vehicles equipped with a 3.4L engine (LNJ), and 2008 Chevrolet Express, Silverado; GMC Savana, Sierra vehicles equipped with a 4.3L engine (LU3) may comment about rough engine operation and the illumination of the Check Engine Light. This may be caused by spark plug wire boots that do not provide a sufficiently robust dielectric seal to withstand the high voltage required to fire the spark plugs.
Special Coverage Adjustment
This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 10 years or 120,000 miles (193,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership. Dealers are to replace all spark plug wires and, if necessary, the spark plug. The repairs will be made at no charge to the customer. For vehicles covered by Vehicle Service Contracts, all eligible claims with repair orders on or after January 5, 2011, are covered by this special coverage and must be submitted using the labor operation codes provided with this bulletin. Claims with repair orders prior to January 5, 2011, must be submitted to the Service Contract provider.
Vehicles Involved
Involved are 2007-2009 model year Chevrolet Equinox and Pontiac Torrent vehicles equipped with a 3.4L engine (LNJ), and 2008 Chevrolet Express, Silverado; GMC Savana, Sierra vehicles equipped with a 4.3L engine (LU3).

Check engine

Check Engine Lights have been on all vehicles
for 30 years

Anyone owning a vehicle should have read some
owners manual & know about any dash light that is
on after the engine is running

This is 30 year old technology

You can study OBD2 Systems on the internet

You can Google any codes you get to learn about
the systems with a problem

Hi, my Mazda 99 S millenia model engine is smooking terribly and i want to get a brand new engine, how do i go about it and how much would it cost me? Am based in Lagos Nigeria. i'm tired of fixing it,...

Dear Sir;

When the time comes for a new engine, the big question is, "Is it worth investing that much money in my vehicle, or should I buy a new one?" There is no right or wrong answer, and each situation should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
For example, if you have a 15-year-old car that is worth $2500, has 180,000 miles on it, has some body rust, needs some other repairs or maintenance, and is in generally poor condition, it probably does not make sense to invest a few thousand dollars in a new engine for that vehicle. On the other hand, if you have an 8-year-old car that’s in relatively good condition, then it makes sense to take a closer look at a remanufactured engine.
Before going any further, consider the honest answers to the following two questions.
1. Does the vehicle suit your needs? Sometimes a vehicle no longer fits the purpose for which it was first purchased. Sometimes situations arise that make your current vehicle incompatible with what you need it to do. For example, you own a 2-seat sports car and you just got married and are expecting to start a family. Is the 2-seater going to be practical for a family of three or more? Another case: you just moved from an apartment to a new single family home and need a truck instead of your current car. If your current vehicle passes this test, then let’s move to question #2.
2. If the engine hadn’t failed, would you keep the vehicle for 2 or more years? On average, the "break even" point on an investment in an engine is about 2 years. In other words, you have to drive the vehicle for 2 years to recoup the cost of the engine. Every day you drive the vehicle beyond the 2-year point, you’re ahead of the game, financially speaking. If you wouldn’t keep if for at least 2 years, you’ll probably lose money. On the other hand, if you have a newer vehicle that’s still worth a considerable amount of money, it may still make sense to replace the engine in order to trade it in or sell it. A vehicle that is not in operable condition has very little value as a trade-in or resale.
If at this point it makes sense to consider replacing your engine, there is more you need to know. The options are to rebuild your current engine, replace it with a used one, or install a remanufactured one.
Used Engines

Used engines are a gamble at best. Most professional shops won’t even consider installing a used engine; the risks are just too great. With a used engine, even if the mileage is reasonably low, you have no idea how the engine was maintained or used. Furthermore, today’s computerized engines are much different than those of 30 or 40 years ago. While it might have worked perfectly well to install a 1965 Chevy small block in a 1969 vehicle, you can’t assume that a 2001 engine will work in a 2000 vehicle.
Computerized engine control systems have software designed for very specific applications, and if things aren’t just right, a real nightmare scenario can ensue. Parts that won’t work right, "Check Engine" lights that won’t go out, stalling or other demons that seem to defy explanation. Furthermore, while most used engines are warranted for some short period of time by the junkyard selling it, they do not pay labor to replace a defective used engine. If the engine fails and the junkyard won’t pay labor, would you expect the shop to do it for nothing? Would you be willing to pay?
Rebuild Your Engine

While rebuilding the engine in your car can result in an excellent repair, there can be some serious drawbacks. One is warranty. If you drive your car a thousand miles away on vacation and the engine has a problem, who’s going to fix it? Towing it back to the shop that rebuilt it is not feasible. Will that shop pay another shop to make the needed repairs? A few will, most won’t. Ask.
A big drawback to rebuilding your engine is time. The engine must be removed, disassembled, machine work performed, parts purchased, reassembled, and installed back in the vehicle. This could require several weeks, where installing a remanufactured engine takes 2 or 3 days. Of course, if you have a modified performance engine, custom rebuilding is your only choice.
The third drawback is the inability to quote an exact price before the job is begun. There is no way to estimate the extent of the damage until the engine is completely disassembled, cleaned and inspected. Unexpected costs can arise due to problems like cracked castings, crankshafts that can’t be repaired or cylinders that need to be sleeved.
The reality is that rebuilding your engine could result in more time, more money and less warranty.

For most people, installing a remanufactured engine is the best choice. The big concern here is the quality of the remanufactured engine and the quality of the shop doing the installation. The quality of remanufactured engines varies greatly. This is one time that you really don’t want an inferior product.
