Help with engine serial number

Postby h-are » Thu Apr 27, 2017 10:33 am

Hey All,

Just wondering if anyone can assist in ascertaining this engine serial number. The serial number is 422892.

The car it came from is no reference as its an import and I'd say engine was changed when it arrived in Aus. Engine has also been changed again since so this one is sitting on an engine stand but I cant find any info on that particular number.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks.

That only seems like just the end of an engine number?

If its what I think it is, on the block near the starter motor it will have a line of numbers example 422892.

That's the end of your engine number, the beginning of it would be EJ25 or FA20, example

EJ25422892 would be the engine number, if its what your after that should also be the serial number. Just whatever engine model it is goes first then your digits.

Hope it helps

Cheers. Yeah I was thinking that would be the case but the issue obviously is thats what I want to know....

Im sure it would be a 2L but 205 or other I may never know.

Your engine number is just the 6 digits. Sometimes a letter before the 6 digits.
Nothing else.

At the front of the motor, behind and slightly to the right of the alternator will be a raised EJ25 or EJ20.

The letters at the front where the cases meet (usually AABA for example) are the piston sizes in the block they are irrelevant to your needs.

Thanks for the input CD and sorry, I havent been very clear in my comments. The reason I'm looking for info is find if its a 205 or 207.
