    Z18XE I'd have thought. considering the age of the vehicle - lift the bonneet and check on the cambelt plastic cover - there should be a sticker with a barcode and the relevant engine code.

    the metal plate isnt always there - especially on coupe models - theres a few owners on here that have coupes and the plate isnt there - dont worry about it is what i say. Obviously if theres other factors worrying u then maybe it could be something of concern but personally i say forget about it!
