Question type: General

Most dodge rams that i look at have the 5.2L eng. but some have the 5.9L gas eng. i was wondering how you could tell the difference so i dont buy one thinking it has one eng. when it really has the other one. lol

look at your vin # a vin Z will be a 5.9 and a vin Y will be a 5.2, there is no real way to visually tell the two apart (that i know of) because they use almost all the same components unless of course you tear the engine down and look at the crank shaft

the best way is the casting #s on the block because they both look the same. one good example is the dakota v8. it comes with a 318 but a 360 is a direct fit with no mods. people wouldnt even know.
