What does the engine motor LS mean on a VIN plate?
Hi Bjuda, interesting question... and one that's proving tricky to discover the answer to! In the Engine/Motor box on the vin plate it should show the type of engine fitted to the car and the letters/numbers are an internal Ford code for that engine. If for example the code was N5 that would indicate that the car was a Sierra Cosworth... but what the LS stands for I'm not sure. One Ford forum reckoned it stood for 1600cc... but that doesn't make sense if your car is a 2.0 4x4! I'm doing some more digging – if I can find an answer I'll let you know. Cheers, Bob
LS: Luxury Sedan....If you want to know anything, simply 'google' it!
No, it's not Luxury Sedan. For starters they're Saloons in the UK! Bjuda was asking about box number 8 on the attached image where Ford UK/Europe has a code number for the engine type that's fitted.
