    Thanks, but I know the VIN for my car I just need to find the number on the engine. I got it replaced and it doesn't seem like they switched out the engine, so I wanted to see if the numbers were different.

The VIN# is on your Title and license plate form. On the car on the lower drivers windshield you will find a plate riveted to the dash or window sill. Within the Vin# are some letters or numbers that correspond to a code list. Example: First letter can be Year, second can be Engine, third figure can be a number for model- and so on.

    You asked about VIN, the engine block is a different number. There may be another expert familiar with VW motors. If you can find one in a Salvage yard you can see yourself. You may find this info in a repair manual at the Library, the autoparts store, or sometimes a dealer will show you their books. Good Luck.

Where to fin the engine vin # on a 2004 vw jetta diesel

The VIN is located on the drivers window post or base of dashboard, the compliance sticker in the door jamb, a sticker in the trunk near the spare tire, and the cowl, under the plastic cover, on the passengers side. But is it the VIN you want, or the engine code? The engine code should be stamped into an ear on the top edge of the cylinder head.

1996 ford explorer engine number location

If you still have the original engine in the vehicle the engine can be identified by the 8th digit in the Vehicle Identifiaction Number (VIN) which is located on the dash at the bottom left of the windshield (best viewed from outside of the vehicle.
The letters N or P indicate a 5.0 liter engine.
The letter X indicates a 4.0 liter V-6 engine.

I hope this helps.

I have a Audi A4 1.8 1996 model and lost his key code and now it do not want to start can some one tel what to do to get key code back

take a copy of your vin number to your dealership, they will take your vin number and make you a key. Check right under your windshield for a number usually located on drivers side right under the glass, could be printed on your engine control computer, or in drivers side door jamb. (chassis number)

Hi friend
The easiest place to find the VIN on your vehicle is right on the lower left corner of your dashboard. You should be able to read the number by looking through your windshield on the driver's side of your car. Check the driver's side door. The VIN might also belocated in the driver's side doorjamb or on the doorpost.

Hi. On 4-cylinder engines, the engine identification number is stamped into the block near the crankcase breather or upper coolant hose fitting. On VR6 engines, the identification number is located directly above the crankshaft pulley, at the top of the cylinder block. The first two (or in the case of later engines, three) digits are the engine code and will be the most useful description of the engine when locating specifications or ordering parts.

Now, if you are trying to locate the vehical VIN, this is on the left side of the dashboard, visible through the windshield. On Golf and Jettas, a second plate is located on the top of the cowling behind the engine.
