Identification numbers of the car

Arrangement of numbers of power units


Improvement of products is continuous process of any line production. Thus, except for cases of large changes of a design of the models descending from the conveyor, results of process of modification are not covered in the operation manual on the car. However the manufacturer makes out number lists of the released spare parts in view of what upon purchase of the last information coded in identification numbers of the car is of particular importance. Doing the order for the demanded spare detail, try to provide to the seller fuller information on the car. Surely report the name of model, year of release, and also number of a body and the power unit.

Identification number of the car (VIN)

This extremely important number on the value is beaten out on a back partition of a motive compartment, and also on Schild, fixed on the dashboard under a windshield from the driver's party of the car. VIN is also brought in PTS and the registration certificate of the vehicle.

In number information on date and place of production of the car, year of release of model, and also body type is ciphered. Besides, VIN is specified on the certified sticker located in the lower part of a rack of a driver's door of the car.

Code of the engine and year of release of model

Two main components of VIN are codes of the engine and year of release of model.

The code of the engine is defined by the sixth position of number, considering from left to right. The code of year of release of model contains in the first VIN position after an asterisk in its central part. Thus the following ratios take place:

Engine code:

5 = F23A1
6 = F23A4
7 = F23A5
8 = J30A1

Code of year of release of model:

W = 1998
X = 1999

The code of the engine is usually specified at the order of spare parts for the power unit. Separately from VIN, as a part of number of the power unit this code settles down to also right (passenger) side of the power unit, near a final collector on 4-cylinder models, or under a starter on the V6 models. The code of the engine makes the first five figures of number and is deciphered as follows:

On 4-cylinder models the code of the engine settles down near a final collector

On the V6 models the code of the engine is beaten out on Schild, the head of cylinders fixed in the left forward corner


F23A1 = the 4-cylinder 16-valvate SOHC engine of 2.3 l equipped with VTEC system
F23A4 = the 4-cylinder 16-valvate SOHC engine of 2.3 l equipped with VTEC system
F23A5 = 4-cylinder 16-valvate SOHC engine of 2.3 l
J23A1 = 6-cylinder V-6 24-valvate SOHC engine of 3.0 l

Number of transmission


This number usually is required at the order of spare parts for repair of the transmission line. On the models equipped with RKPP number of transmission is beaten out on a coupling dome, near a starter. On models with AT number is located on the right in forward part of a case of transmission, near the measuring probe.
