|Car brand||Engine numbers|
An engine number is used to identify the engine of a vehicle. Not every car has a unique engine because they are interchanged by manufacturers, so the same engines are often used in multiple car models. By means of an engine code garages, suppliers and dismantling companies know for which engine they should arrange replacement or parts.
The engine code can usually be easily found on the engine block or on the distributor cap. Sometimes this identification plate is covered with dirt, but in most cases the code is easy to find.
If your engine needs a new part, an overhaul or replacement, you can pass on the engine number to the supplier so that they can make a quotation for you. Just to be sure, also provide the chassis number so that an extra check can take place for the correct engine number.
In many cases there are code books / databases available where the correct engine code can be found based on make, model, version and year of manufacture. Enginenumbers.com is such a database. It is expanded daily with additional information on engine codes. Through this website you can also easily request a price for the overhaul or replacement of your engine.
An engine code is basically the same in every country, because that is the purpose of an engine code. If the same car model has really different engines, then the engine code is also different. But in that case, the engine specifications are also really different.
