the only other way to tell the motor size is by counting the number of spark plugs on the vehicle. unless it is a mustang the years that they had the four cylinders they had 2 spark plugs per cylinder

All 1976 Corvettes were 350ci. The engine numbers will tell you if it's a base engine, L48 or L82.

You can understand from the car model name.

There should be a decal under the hood with the engine size on it. The 8th digit denotes the engine size. Call a parts house and give them the information and they can tell you.

It depends on the manufacture. The eight digit of the vehicle identification number will tell you the size unless it has had the engine replaced. The engine size is also stamped on the driver's side of the engine block, above the starter motor.

Looking at the engine on the left side just behind the water pump on a flat shoulder is the engine code. You will need to give that information to the Chevrolet dealer and he can tell you about it. You can go to one of the book stores and purchase a book.

An engine is a motor that converts thermal energy to mechanical work.

I'm assuming the engine is still in the car. The easiest way is to get the casting code of the block. It is located back by the distributor. There are several online sites that have these casting codes listed and will tell you what size and years the engine is.

if the engine is apart , you can tell by the bore and stroke. a 5.7 l is a 350 cid. engine the bore is 4 inches and the stroke is 4.480 inches. if the engine is not apart, your Chevy dealer may be able to tell you by the motor no. the motor no. should be located on a machined pad in front of the left head. (looking at the eng. from the front.) in front of no. 2 cylinder hope this helps.

No, absolutely not. appearance means nothing. And engine can be cleaned and detailed to look almost new when in fact it can have 100,000 miles on it. A compression test is a good way to determine the condition of an engine. Even that will not tell you the mileage.

There is a sticker under the hood that will tell you the engine size,I believe it's on the fan shourd are air filter top. But it's there somewhere. These are the V8 engines that could be in it. 4.8L,5.3L,6.0L. This is the V6 engine, 4.3L

The 8th digit in the VIN is the engine code.If the 8th digit in the VIN is "2" the engine is a 4.2. If it is a "W" it is a 4.6 engine. If it is a "5" it is a 5.4 engine. If it is a "Z" it is a 5.4 Bi-Fuel engine. If it is a "M" it is a 5.4 Natural Gas engine.

The Type 1 engine # is stamped on the crankcase under the generator support facing the rear. This # will tell you what year the motor is and the stock size if it has not been modified. ( Info from John Muir,s book HOW TO KEEP YOUR VW ALIVE)

You can tell your rear engine is leaking by looking under your rear engine and see if there's drops hitting the ground.

Open the hood and look for the white engine information sticker. It will tell you what size engine you have in liters.

Need to know the engine size so we can tell you correctly.

User Avatar

It will usually indicate on the bike itself.! But if it doesn't you can tel by the size of the radiators (small 250- big 450) or the physical size of the motor, the 250 will have allot of clearance or open spaces.! Hope that helps

Should be a tag under the hood with the engine size on it. If the motor is not original or out of the vehicle take the serial number off the block & see a parts supplier or the dealer to find out.

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