The engine number is stamped on the Block and is completely different from the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). The VIN number is located on various places (In the Windshield on the Drivers side, in the Door Panel, sometimes, there are stickers on removable panels

As mentioned before the engine number is DIFFERENT from the VIN number and the like. To find it you have to get a flash light, and a rag. The engine sits sideways in the engine bay - as you are looking at the engine, standing in front of it, you should have the transmission to the right and the engine belts to the left (hint: there is usually a "Caution" sticker warning you of the moving belts). Make sure the engine is OFF when you are poking around it.
The Engine number (there is a type and a Serial No. for it) is on a white sticker - it is on the timing chain cover (in the middle) for V8s and 6 cyl). It is white with black letters and there should be two numbers - the Serial No and the Engine part number. You can move some of the hoses out of the way and just look down there with the flash light. You will need the rag to rub away dirt/oil to see it.

For the most part the engine SIZE is as you
said the 6 or 8th letter of the VIN#

Wix Filters has a chart to show you
how to find your engine code from the VIN

Sorry -- engine code is what your referring to
Basically the cubic inches

    I think the engine code is different from the engine number, the question was on the location of the engine number. The engine code give an indication of the year and the plant the engine was made, this would be general, the engine number should however be unique to each car! Please give more insight. Thanks

There are two different engine sizes at Pontiac Transport. You can find it reading the 8th digit of the Vehicle Identification Number. This is the engine code.
6-231 (3.8L, VIN "L")
6-191 (3.1L, VIN "D")
To buy the motor go to the Internet @:
Select the Year, Make, and Model of your car.
1993, Pontiac, Transport.
Select Engine. Select the size of Engine.
I found some engines, Engine Size 3.8L, for $750.
