VIN Number (Vehicle Identification Number)

 

In some cases you may also need your vehicle VIN number (Vehicle Identification Number or sometimes referred as Chassis or Frame Number on older vehicles). Some models have different Ignition Leads depending on the VIN number.

VIN Numbers are made up of 17 characters stamped on the vehicle chassis or ID plate. To avoid confusion these characters never have the letter ‘O’ or ‘I’ they are always numbers zero or one.

This VIN number is unique to your specific vehicle and can be used to identify the correct high tension leads required, the same may apply for the need to find the vehicle Engine Number. Usually you can find the VIN stamped on a metal identification plate attached to the vehicle.

The diagram below highlights some places these ID plates, or Compliance Plates, may be attached to the vehicle.

Engine Number

The Engine number is a unique Number identifying your vehicle engine and can be found stamped on your engine block on a machined flat area. If your engine is dirty or oily this number may be obscured, so wipe down area to reveal engine number.

Stick-on labels attached to the engine, laser etching, or stampings in the engine block may indicate the engine unit number/build code date. The engine ID number will often be located on the lower left of the engine block (stamped on the rear end raised area of the Cylinder Block left side), however it can be located in one of several positions.
