Yes. You just need to know where in the VIN number the engine code is located.

most of the time it is the eighth digit in from the left of your VIN number. you can call a dealer or parts store like CARQUEST and they should be able to tell tou what engine size you have. Techboy23

(applies if its 1981 and newer.)

Yes, the VIN number will identify the model, color, engine, trim, and other features of your vehicle.

The Vehicle Identification Number, or VIN, only identifies the body and frame of the vehicle. There is no VIN number on the engine and the engine number is not related to the VIN.

The vin number tells where the car was built, when it was built, the engine size, the colour of the vehicle etc.

Engine size depends on the year, options, etc. There are vin checkers online that will tell which engine it was manufactured with.

Look on the side of engine cylinder for the engine CC. 348cc is a 350

This is not a valid VIN number so I am unable to provide information. You can look up the size of the engine under the hood of the vehicle. Every car manufacturer has a different digit of the VIN that indicates the size of the engine.

I would copy down the "VIN" number and take it to the dealer and ask them.

Call the service department of a Ford dealership with the VIN number and they can tell you.

If it's the original engine use the VIN number and go to your favorite parts supplier and they can tell you. If it's been changed you have to get the casting number and do some research. Or go to your garage and ask your mechanic and he will be able to tell.

If you are looking for the engine code in the VIN number, it is usually the 5th or the 8th number. Go to your local auto parts store and have them look up your engine, tell them you need to know your VIN code. They will be able to give you options like "It's either A, C, or L" and then look at the VIN number of your car, find the VIN code, and that is what it will always be.

The VIN number should have an indicator. VIN number references can be found online or in the repair manual for your car.

Under the hood towards the left headlight by the radiator kind of there is a small white sticker it will have what engine size your truck has. If it is gone, a dealer can tell from the VIN number.

The eighth digit of the vin number is the engine code.

It can't. The the only thing that a VIN number has in common with the engine is the 8th digit of the VIN tells what type of engine it is. The VIN number though may allow the dealer to access the engine number from their databases.
