How to Tell What Type of Engine You Have By the Ford VIN

75

Every vehicle has a VIN, or Vehicle Identification Number, which provides information about the car. Within the VIN code for Ford vehicles, eight characters of the 17-character sequence provide information about the engine. This information helps you determine the type of engine used for your vehicle and also helps you verify that the engine in the vehicle is equivalent to the original one.

Step 1

Locate the VIN beneath the windshield of the car on the driver’s side.
