The engine number is XXXXX on the passenger side of the block. Remove the starter to see it.

Are you sure that it is located behind the starter ? A Ford parts clerk indicated it would be on the back of the driver side valve cover. It is important since I have to pay someone to remove either the starter or the valve cover in order to find this number since I cannot register the vehicle without it(engine ID ). Thanks
Ford Mechanic: autodoc_2000, Auto Technician replied 8 years ago
The engine casting number is XXXXX behind the starter. With your last reply I believe you are looking for the emission calibration sticker. If this is correct it is located on the valve cover. It is a white sticker. The problem is if anyone ever replaced valve cover gaskets or cleaned the engine down with degreaser the information may be gone from the sticker. It may just be a white sticker with no information on it. If that is the case there is not a whole lot you can do because Ford dealers cannot even access this information anymore. The Ford system Oasis only goes back about 10 years. You may be able to see the sticker with a flashlight and a mirror to prevent having to remove the valve cover.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
