Re: Looking for an engine code for a Kia sportage

tlab at 4x4Wire told me this:
"VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM FOR KIA SPORTAGE
The Vehicle ldentification Number (VlN) for the Kia Sportage is comprised of seventeen (17) digits
and is stamped on a metal plate that is located on the drivers side of the instrument panel visible
from outside of the vehicle through the windshield. The VIN is also stamped into the center of the
engine compartment bulkhead, into the passenger side of the frame (forward section) and it is printed on the Federal Motor Vehicles Safety Standards (FMVSS) label which is attached to the
driver's door jamb."
