Customer Question
I have a 1996 Freightliner...
I have a 1996 Freightliner MT45 with a Cummins diesel engine and I need to get the engine family name and engine year. In order to continue operating this vehicle in California they require that the vehicle be registered on CA Air Resources Board. I looked all over the engine compartment and I can't find it. Any help will be appreciated Thank you.
