Asked by Dec 21, 2007 at 08:21 PM about the 1993 Ford Aerostar

Question type: General

If I have the 145 horsepower engine, is 2800 lbs OK to pull?  I have sway bars, weight transfer hitch and overload shocks.  I was told I would have no problem.  How do I tell which engine I have under the hood?

You should be fine with a 2800lb trailer no matter what, but the 8th digit of your VIN number will tell you what engine you have. Any auto parts store can tell you from the 8th digit (a letter in this case) of your VIN number.
