The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is located at three positions on the vehicle. The first is at the top left side of the dashboard, viewable through the windshield.
The second location is at the top of the firewall in the engine compartment. Some VIN numbers are stamped into the firewall, while others are stamped into a vehicle identification tag that is secured to the firewall.
The third location is at the door jamb, below the tire inflation pressure label.
The seventeen-digit vehicle number is composed of an identification number and a five or six-digit serial number.
The two most important digits are the sixth and eighth. The sixth digit identifies the engine type. This will be used later in the guide to identify the engines in the specification charts. The eighth digit identifies the model year.
