How to determine engine range when ordering parts?

OK - I get my parts from Fastlane, and notice that often there are engine ranges to consider. Is there a number somewhere on the car that I can use to order the correct parts? thanks

Engine serial number and chassis serial number.

The engine number is on the block. It will start with the engine model # (110, 117, 115, 130, etc.,) followed a subtype (920, 320, etc. not real numbers, just made up) and THEN the serial number.

Example (not real, just for explanation)


This is the M110 engine,(110) low compression US version with secondary external mounts for the "S" chassis, (920) and then the engine serial number (0123456).

The engine number will be located on a flat pad on the left rear of the engine as I remember. I hope I'm not getting the location of that one mixed up with another.

Get subscibed to EPC and when you do you can enter your VIN and get a "datacard." Datacard will show engine number.

kent - Where in EPC is the data card? I don't see it in there in any of the pull-down menus. Thanks!

Click on "functions" on the top menu bar after you have entered the VIN. Data card should be there for the clicking. One of my vehicles (87 560SEC) does not display the data card but my earlier EURO and later vehicles do. I wonder what's up with that? Mark
