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.

How do I know if my 99 intrigue is a 3.5L or 3.8L?

under the hood you should find a white stamp, toward the top it will tell you the ENGINE FAMILY which is your engine size . Or on the door jamb you will find a metal stamp riveted to the body with the same info. The 8th digit in the VIN # is also a auto parts or car dealer info translate it. Providing it's all original. Good luck Frank M

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.

Where is the engine vin number , one for engine, not auto, on new Chevy factory 503 engine just installed in my 2000 Silverado truck.

contact the manufacturer factory for this one as they may not stamp the number until sold. I faced this problem on a brand new still in the box v8 engine from international factory and to get around it I just stamped the old engine number on the block and ground the number of the old block

Also engine identification can take place using various methods. The VIN, described earlier in this section, contains a code identifying the engine which was originally installed in the vehicle. In most cases, this should be sufficient for determining the engine with which your car is currently equipped. But, some older vehicles may have had the engine replaced or changed by a previous owner. If this is the case, the first step in identification is to locate an engine serial number and code which is stamped on the block or located on adhesive labels that may be present on valve covers or other engine components.

Engine number

The engine number on the G16A/B series should be stamped on the left hand side of the block, at the rear (just before the gearbox bellhousing), on a flat area immediately above the sump. As for the auto/manual problem, either someone stuffed up at the time of initial registration, or it's been changed. Your Suzuki dealer should be able to tell you how your VIN was originally specified, and there is a method of telling from the build information number on the VIN plate, but I don't have that info handy. Could find it if you really needed it.

I recently bought a 1989 Cadillac, shortly after driving it, the head gasket blew, it also has a dry lifter. My problem is the guy i got it from said that it is not the original engine. How do i know if...

Cadallic put several diferent engines in the 80s cars because of the EPA if I remember correctly. (I may be wrong)
you can tell what type of engine you should have by the vehicle vin number
V-6 is vin number -4
V8s(472,500,425 and 368 vin numbers RST( and ^
5.& (chev) vin number-7
5.0 (307 olds) vin number-Y
if you get under the car there will be a number stamped on the engine over the oil pan area.
you can match that to the Vin number on the car bottom of windshield or under the hood on the fire wall or in the area of the radiator i believe.
then if these match you may have to check a dealership or write to cadallic for the exact engine or have a knowledgeable person with cads tell you what it is.(this is what I did)
