Find engine code:

We show you how to quickly and easily find the engine code (or engine type, engine identification letters, engine number).

1. Find the engine code on the engine

The engine identification letter is usually stamped on the timing belt cover on the strut mounts. However, it is often difficult to read. This is the most reliable method to determine the engine code 100% accurately and correctly. Unfortunately, it is not always visible from the outside when installed.”

2. Find the engine identification letter in the service booklet

Occasionally, the engine identification letter can also be found in the service booklet, for example, on the first or last page. You should check this quickly as it is very fast. This method is also very reliable and precise.

3. The engine code is in the vehicle registration document

“Occasionally, the engine code is in the vehicle registration document. This is becoming more common, especially with newer cars. Unfortunately, for older cars, it is not listed in the vehicle registration document. In the vehicle registration document, the engine code can be found on the first page at the top left in field D.2. The engine code is often only a part of the entire content of field D.2

4. Find the engine code using the chassis number (VIN)

This is a reliable and quite simple method to find the engine number. The VIN number is a 17-character combination of numbers and letters. It is always found in the vehicle registration document. With the help of the VIN number, you can find the engine type / engine code. However, for this you need paid software.
OUR TIP:
Simply go to a workshop or a local parts dealer. They always have such a program that can find the correct engine code using the chassis number.”
