    Exclamation Engine Code

    I remember seeing an FAQ somewhere on here detailing engine codes but I can't seem to find it anymore.

    I'm looking for the engine code for my astra but I don't know where to find it on my car.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks!

    Going off the info in ur sig i'd say yours is the Z16XE... the early 1.6 16v being the X16XEL.

    The later 'Z' designated engines utilise an electronic accelerator system (ie they have no accelerator cable) whereas the earlier 'X' variants use a standard cable operated throttle.

    Apart from the obvious emissions differences and other factors - the throttle is one of the best ways to distinguish between the two.
    The code should also be stamped on the right side (as u look at it from the front) of the engine block....location may be wrong as Im speaking off the top of my head lol.

    Here's the info u require though - Happy Reading!!!!

    Thanks! Apart from knowing where the oil, brake and water goes I haven't a clue about things under the bonnet.

    To find the engine cover do I need to take the engine cover off cos I don't know how to do that...
