    Depending on the model year, could be a X20DTL (up to 2001) or a Y20DTL or Y20DTH.

    The engine number is stamped on the engine block, right hand side, looking down from the front, where the flange of the block meets the gearbox - a bit of emery cloth to clean off and a torch should show up the stamped code.

    Regards
    Nick.

    Oh, my apologies, I thought they came standard to all Vauxhall cars

    There's another easy way to tell your engine code, its 2003, so its the Y20DT*, and to find out the * part, open your bonnet, if there's a hose going across the top of the engine its L, if its round the side its H
