Engine decoder results: Engine assembly plant: V= Flint, Michigan.
Engine was assembled in December, day 10.
We are sorry but we did not find engine assembly code "XI" in our database. Please double check it and try again.

there is no way to tell if its the original motor. but the vin. will tell you what size engine came with the vehicle.your local gm dealer can tell you which numbers and letters mean what. including whether or not it is actually an SS.

SOURCE: trans I.D. by vin code

I can tell you what engine is suppose to be in it by the VIN. I can tell you what transmission you have if you can describe the shape of the bottom pan. As far as the engine that you have that is tough. The engine size should be stamped on the rear of the engine near the distributor near where the engine and transmission meet. Rectangular pan 4 speed= 700r4 Pan like the state of Illinois, 3 speed= TH400 Squared off in front, tapers on both sides to the rear and slopes up to the rear, 4 speed=4L80E These are the only transmissions that were factory installed in a 1992 C1500. If it looks different let me know. You never know what someone has installed.

just spray it a little if needed with WD-40 to help loosen then I pry it forward from behind with a good size screwdriver or similar, and it just kind of rolls out.

I would suspect at first that this will not work for this problem. On the other hand what do you have to loose by trying it? I have never once got it to work regardless of the manufacturer that I have used.

Considering the price is cheaper to try the block sealer I would at least give it a try with low expectations. Who knows - you could get lucky.

Should it not work yours is and easy one to do a head gasket on. The right fix is a head gasket and inspection of the leaking cylinder wall to make sure there is not a crack in the cylinder wall is really the right fix.

Depending on where you live can vary in price, but $700 would be a starting price. The labor involved with that is the problem.

My chevy small block V-8, has an engine ID of T0429HCR. it is a 327, can you tell me what horsepower version it it? Thanks!


Well, that number is not on my list.
T stands for the Tonawanda plant
0429 means the build date was April 29
HC would be a 1965 327 full size car 275 hp
HR would be a 1965 327 Vette 300 hp
HCR could be something built after 1971 but I can't find it on that list either.
The casting number might help.

HOW DO I DETERMINE IF ENGINE size IS 3.8 OR 3.3 Vin id for uto is is GP443


Hello Babycakes.
The 8th digit in the vehicle identification number is the code for engine size.
The VIN # can be found on the drivers door sticker or at the base of the front windshield on the left side.
3.3 flex fuel is VIN 3
3.3 regular is VIN R
3.8 is VIN L

There you are. If you need further assistance ask me here.
Thank you for using FixYa.
