Haynes Tech Tips - Vehicle Identification Number

 

Your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)

Every vehicle has an individual serial number, or VIN, which features valuable information about that car or truck.

The VIN can be found on the Certificate of Title or vehicle registration card. The number is also stamped to a small plate on the top of the dashboard. Stand outside the vehicle, on the driver’s side, and you will find the VIN at the base of the windshield, just behind the hood and cowl area.

The VIN can tell you which assembly plant manufactured your car and when it was built. It will also indicate the engine type and capacity (which is why it’s important to have this number when buying replacement parts).

Deciphering which numbers mean what can be a little tricky, since each manufacturer displays the information a little differently, but consult your owner’s manual or your Haynes Manual for instructions on cracking the code!
