Where can I find the engine number?

The engine number isn’t generally required for insurance purposes, but it may be needed for warranty work, recalls and for other needs. You’ll find it located in the same place whether you drive a stick shift or have an automatic transmission: look for the engine number on the front, top, center of the engine.
