Hello

I am a bit naive when it comes to cars and need some help...

I need a new engine for my Ford fiesta freestyle 1.25 2001. It says its an zetec engine and my boyfriend is trying to get a new engine for it and he has been told he needs a 3 digit engine code that should be on my engine.. but there are a few places in the engine with lots of numbers and digits but I haven't a clue where to find it?

Please if someone could help I'd be very grateful.

Have a look on the VIN plate, the engine code is usually on there.

Hi

The engine code is on a sticker or stamped on the block. I was thinking something like GUE or GUJ or something like that. Those three letters refer to the revison of the Zetec s Zetec E Duratec and Sigma i think. I stand to be corrected.

The Sticker if it is still there is on the cam belt cover on the left of the engine obscured by the radiator top up tank.

Hello Again

another port of call would be to look at your v5 it may be on there.

On the engine its a big white sticker if its still stuck on there.

I've checked there and unfortunately it's not on the v5. I did have a look lastnight at the engine and as i looked at it, on the left side, there was a sticker on it with quite a few numbers on it, do you think it's one of them?

Thanks x

Hi nadine

It is the biggest sticker of them all it may have a bar code on it.

With something like 1.25 then the serial number etc.

Obviously for security dont type it all but type what letters you see.

this means very little to me,but hopefully more to you:


3 digit code on engine block--zetec

3 Digit code maybe found on pad on the cylinder block adjacent to oil pan rail (oil sump flange) on the exhaust side, or on rear flange of cylinder block adjacent to crankshaft position sensor.

as noted above there is a 2 digit code on the vin plate,off the top of my head its the second box down on the left.
1,6 is L1
1,8 is rk
2,0 is NG

to give you an idea what you are looking for.

Dave

Engine Code DHC
DHC Coded Engine for these makes, models and years
FORD FIESTA 01/2000
Most common engine size(s) (cc) : 1250


Engine Code DHF
DHF Coded Engine for these makes, models and years
FORD FIESTA 01/02 02/03 2002
Most common engine size(s) (cc) : 1240 1300 1250


Looks like it is DHC or DHF,depending when the car was built.

Thanks Dave,

Ok, well I have found the sticker with the barcode that Jamie was talking about and it has YS6G on it at the top, now the YS6 appears on most of the parts too, so is this engine code? apart from that I have found STK on a metal plate (not the Vin plate) and also TUER

can you make any sense of that?
