Your VIN number says many things about you car like where it was made...and a part of it is something you should memorize
if you order parts or want to ask about parts and pricing....count to the 8th digit. It may be a letter or a number. Memorize it.
What that stands for is the engine type you have. Today, I ordered some parts for my own car through 106 St Tire.
Turns out the 8th letter or number told our supplier that I needed a 120 volt alternator rather than a 140 volt
one. Who knew?
