Each engine is referred to by both its family designation, such as 5S-FE, and its production or serial number. The serial number can be important when ordering parts. Certain changes may have been made during production of the engine; different parts will be required if the engine was assembled before or after the change date. Generally, parts stores and dealers list this data in their catalogs, so have the engine number handy when you go.
It's a good idea to record the engine number while the vehicle is new.
The engine serial number consists of an engine series identification number, followed by a 6-digit production number. There are only two engines in the 1994-98 Celica models, the 5S-FE and 7A-FE.
