Thank you for writing in. The engine code is typically part of the vehicle's VIN. The VIN, or vehicle identification number, is located on the dashboard of the vehicle as well as on the side of the driver's door. The 8th digit of the number represents the engine that was installed with the vehicle. However, some models also include a separate engine identification number, which is stamped into the engine itself. They are typically located on top of the engine on the passenger side so that you can find them relatively easily. Good luck!
