Ok, I'm looking at a used motor for my 94 STS with a spun bearing...don't know the mileage on it, but compression tests came out good and it has a halfway decent warranty on it. Any chance someones got the subscription to CarFax and could run the vin for me?
Thanks a bunch!
invalid # with f changed to p is this it ? sts96
Hmmm...I'll have to call and see if that was an F or a P...I don't know that I like the looks of that motor...multiple dimantled and salvage and junk titles on the car and a major component failure that caused the vehicle to be not worth repairing. This is turning out to be a real pain in the A...

wait, you can run a car fax on just an enigne?!?
Can somebody run my engine...
I know it is an L37, and somebody said it is a '93-'94.... can I get an exact year, adn any history on the engine?

oh, that is the vin of the car....
...can the engine vin still be ran?
I don't think you can do it with just the engine...once its out of the car, its purty much up in the air what happened to it in the past.
The engine and transmisson both have the last 9 digits of the car vin as well as some other parts. Soyou can tell if they are from another car. I have the vin from the cars my engine and transmission came from so I know some of the history. Also listed my cars with www.mygmlink.com and got the fuel rail recall letter and. maintain service records also with reminders . lol sts96

Not that this matters much but I think the recall goes through DMV....they get the names and addresses to anyone with the year and type of car needing the fix
