How to Check Engine Size


The size of a vehicle’s engine is an important factor in it’s overall valuation. For example, insurance companies use the engine size to help determine the cost of the car’s insurance premiums, while banks use it as a factor in determining a car’s loan value.

If you want to know the size of your vehicle’s engine, there are several methods available to get the information.

Step 1

Open the hood of your vehicle and prop it up. Make sure it is turned off and cold before proceeding. Look around the engine bay for an etched or raised marking indicating the size of the engine.
