How do you know what size of engine is in a car that has had the engine changed?
the only sure way is to remove the cylinder head and measure the diameter of the piston cylinder muliplied by the length of the piston stroke(how far it travels from bottom to top) this will give you the cubic inch (or cubic centimeters depending what country your are in) of ONE cylinder multiply that by the number of cylinders to give the total engine displacment (Size).
THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW: Engine size and type Damage, most old style engines that have a lifter fail ruing the camshaft Many engines that have a damaged camshaft also have other damage from the metal ground off the damaged parts and will soon require the engine changed. Without knowledge of the type make model and year of engine this is no an answerable question
More information is needed. The year make and model of the car. also the current engine size. usually when replacing with a different motor but same size, things such as intake / exhaust manifolds, alternators / power steering pumps etc may have to be changed. In some cases, flywheels, and some larger components may have to be changed.
You'll need to go to your local car parts dealer and ask them for a printout for your serpentine belt route. You'll need to know the year and type of car you have. Also, you'll need to know the size of your engine. I just changed mine on a 96 Caravan 3.8L. The diagram was on the flat painted area between the radiator and grill, facing up.
Many factors determine the fuel consumption of any car and engine size is one of them. The size, weight, aerodynamics, and how it is driven are of utmost importance. Without knowing the make, model, and year of the car, and just going by engine size it is impossible to answer this question intelligently.
800 cubic centimeters is the size of the engine. That is 0.8 liters, which is how engine size is also measured. Think of it as the "volume" of the engine. It's a puny engine by today's standards; at least in a car. Consider that an average car in the united states has a 2500cc engine. A bugatti veyron has a 16000cc engine. Engine size is generally proportional to engine power. In simple terms, it is…
Can a roadrunner that has had the engine changed from a 383 to a 440 be considered a numbers matching car Also where on a 1971 roadrunner is the fender tag located and what if there is no fender tag?
Since we don't know what car the engine's in, and many manufacturers made an engine this size, we can only go by this: If the car is ANYTHING but a Honda, there's generally a line on the crankshaft pulley and another on the engine block. If it's a Honda, the line is on the flywheel and there's a hole in the bellhousing to see it through.
A motor driving a generator to operate an electric car does not need to be as large as an engine that normally drives a car. This is because the engine must be made to provide the maximum power that the car requires wheras the generator motor only needs to provide enough to charge the batteries.The actual size depends on the size of the car and the batteries used.
