What digit in my vin number indicates transmission type for a ford aerostar 93 3.0 ? thank you


The VIN does not designate transmission type. You will need to get the information off of the transmission itself.

Why did the 1950s cars sometimes show the engine ID# as the title ID # ???


in the early days engine manufacturers used any code they liked when numbering and identifying engines and cars. It wasn't until later years that a universal /global system was adapted by all manufacturers and that was the VIN numbers ( vehicle identification numbers which comprised a combination of 16 numbers and letters
In effect the vin number is the bar code for the vehicle.

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.

Fixya makes it very hard to ask a simple question! All i want is an answer to this simple question- how do you identify a car engine?


Here are some tips:
1. Locate the casting numbers on the block. This can be either behind the distributor on the engine, or near the starter. If you have to, use the wire brush and degreaser to clean the engine and see the number easier.
2. Note the first letter in the casting number. It's a letter to designate the year of manufacture of the part.

B - 1950s
C - 1960s
D - 1970s
E - 1980s
3. Note the second number in the casting number. This is for the last digit in the year. For example, a casting number starting with B8 was manufactured in 1958.
4. Note the third letter in the casting number. This is the model design of the vehicle.

A - Generic full-size ford
C - 1966 to 1975 Remanufactured part
D - Ford Falcon
E - Ford truck
F - Foreign market or Trans Am racing engine
G - '61 to '67 Comet or '68 to '76 Montego
H - '66 to '82 heavy truck or Holman Moody high performance parts
J - Industrial Ford model
L - Lincoln
M - Mercury
O - '67 to '76 Ford Torino and all Ford Fairlane
S - Ford Thunderbird
T - Truck
U - Econoline van
V - Lincoln
W - Mercury Cougar
Y - '62 to '72 Meteor (Canada model) and '75 to '81 Bobcat
Z - Mustang
6 - Pantera
5. Note the fourth letter in the casting number. If you're looking at a complete engine, it should be an "E."
6. Note the next four digits in the casting number, generally after a hyphen or space. This is the generic part number for the engine. This number should be between 6000 and 6898 for an engine base assembly.
7. Note the last letter in the number. This is the engineering version of the part, or the design change.

Good luck.

How to read a VIN
1st character- Identifies the country in which the vehicle was manufactured.
For example: U.S.A.(1or 4), Canada(2), Mexico(3), Japan(J), Korea(K), England(S), Germany(W), Italy(Z)
2nd character- Identifies the manufacturer. For example; Audi(A),
BMW(B), Buick(4), Cadillac(6), Chevrolet(1), Chrysler(C), Dodge(B),
Ford(F), GM Canada(7), General Motors(G), Honda(H), Jaquar(A), Lincoln(L), Mercedes Benz(D), Mercury(M), Nissan(N), Oldsmobile(3), Pontiac(2or5), Plymouth(P), Saturn(8), Toyota(T), VW(V), Volvo(V).
3rd character- Identifies vehicle type or manufacturing division.
4th to 8th characters- VDS - Vehicle Descriptor Section. These 5 characters occupy positions 4 through 8 of the VIN and may be used by the manufacturer to identify attributes of the vehicle. Identifies vehicle features such as body style, engine type, model, series, etc.
9th Character - The check digit "character or digit 9" in the sequence of a vehicle identification number (VIN) built beginning with model year 1981 (when the 17 character digit format was established) can best be described as identifying the VIN accuracy.
A check digit shall be part of each vin (since 1981) and shall appear in position
nine (9) of the VIN on the vehicle and on any transfer documents containing
the vin prepared by the manufacturer to be given to the first owner for purposes
other than resale. Thus, the VINs of any two vehicles manufactured within a 30
year period shall not be identical. The check digit means a single number or letter
"x" used to verify the accuracy of the transcription of the vehicle identification
number.
After all other characters in the VIN have been determined by the manufacturer
the check digit is calculated by carrying out a mathematical computation
specified. This is based on vin position, sample vin, assigned value code,
weight factor and multiply assigned value times weight factors. The values are added and the total is divided by 11. The remainder is the check digit number.
The correct numeric remainder - zero through nine (0-9) will appear.
However, if the remainder is 10 the letter "X" is used to designate the check
digit value/number.
10th character- Identifies the model year. For example: 1988(J), 1989(K), 1990(L), 1991(M), 1992(N), 1993(P), 1994(R), 1995(S), 1996(T),
1997(V), 1998(W), 1999(X), 2000(Y)------2001(1), 2002(2), 2003(3)
11th character- Identifies the assembly plant for the vehicle.
12th to 17th characters- VIS - Vehicle Identifier Section. The last 8 characters of the VIN are used for the identification a of specific vehicle. The last four characters shall always be numeric. Identifies the sequence of the vehicle for production as it rolled off the manufacturers assembly line.

Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) are used to uniquely identify motor vehicles. Prior to 1980 there was not an accepted standard for these numbers, so different manufacturers used different formats. Modern day VINs consist of 17 characters that do not include the letters I, O or Q.

I need a spark plug wire diagram for 1987 ford 302 crown vic


1987 Ford Crown Victoria 5.0L FI 8cyl

Duraspark Type Plug Wires
The spark plug wires used with the Duraspark type ignition system are 5 / 16 in. (8mm) in diameter to contain the higher output voltage. There are two types of wires used in this system, and some engines may have both types installed. It is important to properly identify the type of wire used for each cylinder before replacements are made.

Both types are blue in color and have silicone jacketing. The insulation material underneath the jacketing on some plug wires is a silicone layer separated by glass braid. The plug cable not incorporating the silicone layer is used where engine temperatures are cooler and are identified with the letter SE with black printing. The plug cables with the silicone insulation are used where high engine temperatures are present. These cables are identified with the letters SS with white printing.
Each spark plug cable, if original, is marked with the cylinder number, model year and date of cable manufacture (quarter and year). Service replacement wires will not have cylinder numbers, or manufacture date.


On any vehicle equipped with a catalytic converter, never allow the engine to run for more than 30 seconds with a spark plug wire disconnected. Unburned fuel in the cylinder may ignite in the converter as it is exhausted and damage the converter.

When removing spark plug wires, mark and tag the individual wires. Grasp, then slowly, twist the insulator back and forth on the spark plug to free the insulator. Do not pull on the wire directly as it may become separated from the connector inside the insulator. Special tools are available which can help ease plug wire removal, and prevent damage to a cable.

When installing a new set of spark plug wires, replace the wires one at a time so there will be no confusion. Start by replacing the longest wire first. Route the wire exactly the same as the original.

How do I find out when my car was manufactured


It's all in the VIN.

A car’s vehicle identification number (VIN) is the automotive equivalent of
human "DNA".

How to read a VIN
1st character- Identifies the country in which the vehicle was manufactured.
For example: U.S.A.(1or 4), Canada(2), Mexico(3), Japan(J), Korea(K), England(S), Germany(W), Italy(Z)
2nd character- Identifies the manufacturer. For example; Audi(A),
BMW(B), Buick(4), Cadillac(6), Chevrolet(1), Chrysler(C), Dodge(B),
Ford(F), GM Canada(7), General Motors(G), Honda(H), Jaquar(A), Lincoln(L), Mercedes Benz(D), Mercury(M), Nissan(N), Oldsmobile(3), Pontiac(2or5), Plymouth(P), Saturn(8), Toyota(T), VW(V), Volvo(V).

1997(V), 1998(W), 1999(X), 2000(Y)------2001(1), 2002(2), 2003(3)
