1994 Volvo 850 T5 Engine Serial Number

Post by theWaterBiscuit » Fri Apr 12, 2019 1:05 am

Greetings everyone,

I have a 1994 Volvo 850 T5 Sedan (well it is technically my Aunt's, since I am not yet eligible to obtain a driver's license under Thai law, as I am not yet 18).

Currently, this engine serial number sticker is leaving me perplexed, as I was under the impression that the engine serial number was a six-digit code.

I live in Thailand, and the Volvo's VIN number is YV1LS5906R4153333.

I appreciate any support that could be given to me in solving this issue.

Thanks,

Komkrit (or call me Yim, which means "smile" in Thai, whichever's easier.)

The last six digits in the VIN is the chassis number not the engine serial number.


For the engine, It better to read the stamping on the block.
