The vehicle's engine can either be identified by the 8th digit in the VIN, or by the Engine Identification Number (EIN), which is stamped onto the engine itself. The location of the EIN depends on the particular engine, with which the vehicle is equipped. Refer to the following list for the specific location:
1.8L and 2.0L engines-The EIN is stamped onto the upper, center of the engine block, near the distributor mounting boss.
2.2L Gasoline engine-The stick-on labels attached to the engine, or the laser etching or stamping is located on the left-hand side of the engine block, near the transmission mounting flange.
2.2L diesel engine-The EIN is stamped on the upper, front of the engine block, near the combination manifold mounting area.
2.6L and 2.8L engines-The EIN is stamped on the rear end raised area of the left-hand side of the cylinder block.
3.1L engine-The EIN is stamped on the front top of the engine block. The optional engine serial number is stamped on the right and left-hand rocker arm covers.
3.2L engine-The EIN is stamped on the left-hand rear lower area of the engine block, above the starter motor.
Fig. Fig. 1: The EIN is stamped on the rear end raised area of the left-hand side of the cylinder block-2.6L engines
Fig. Fig. 2: The EIN is located on the front, upper area of the engine block near the distributor-1.8L and 2.0L engines
Fig. Fig. 3: The 2.2L diesel engine's EIN is stamped on the engine block near where the combination manifold mounts to the cylinder head
Fig. Fig. 4: The 3.2L V6's EIN is stamped on the boss directly above the starter motor mounting position
Fig. Fig. 5: The 3.1L V6 is equipped with many EIN labels, two of which are mounted directly on the top of the rocker arm covers
Often, the EIN can be seen most easily through the left-hand, front wheel housing once the inner mud guard is removed.
