Advice 3 : How to determine the year of manufacture of the engine in his room

If you know that the engine is released along with your auto, you can determine the year of manufacture chassis number.
You will need

- a computer and an Internet connection.
Find your car VIN number (chassis number). It is every car, and with it, you can learn not only the year of issue of car and engine and other technical details, to its original configuration. Usually the VIN stamped on the car, its point under the hood or elsewhere of cars, but to find it you will also be able to the Datasheet.
Look at the symbol found VIN standing at the tenth position. It will either be a digit or a letter. This symbol is encrypted the year of the car. The letter a indicates that the car was either in 1980 or in 2010. The letter H denotes 1987, N – 1992, P – 1993, R – 1994 V – 1997 J – 1998 year.
If you found in tenth position numbers of a body figure, it means that your car was manufactured after 2000, with which numbering begins. Thus, if the vehicle released in 2003, you will find figure 3. In 2010, the numbering ends, and again uses the letters of the Latin alphabet. But now no longer uses the letters O, Q, U, Y, and Z.

The VIN does not always indicate the exact date of release. In fact, there is a possibility that the car was released a year earlier, but that is the cost of production that does not reduce the significance of this number.
