  • HAHAHA D is Drive. I'm not laughing at you because you are a woman driver, because I know plenty of men that don't know squat about vehicles either..don't get me wrong I am no mechanic or anything but I make it a point to learn the basic info about any vehicle I own. It's just, for so many reasons, a smart, safe thing to do.
  • Being a guy, I have no clue what so ever, may its coz i don't drive.
  • I don't have a car, but if I did, I wouldn't know, no.
  • I will cheer you up. I'm a dude and my ex g/f knew more about engines than me. She could change oil for one thing and I cannot.
  • Yes I do know and I would hope that you will know now too or you'll get ripped off everytime.
  • I am a guy who grew up around cars. It was a big part of my life. I work in the industry for a while. I will tell you that if you own a car, you should know what size engine you have. And transmission type. You should also know make, model and production year. The more information you know, the better. There are alot of crooked mechanics out there ( remember I worked in the industry). Crooked mechanics love women who don't know anything about their car. It is easier to trick them.
  • have no idea
  • er... 4 cylinder, and a 6 speed manual transmission, but if I'm supposed to know a brand name or a specific number about how much force it makes or whatever, I'm stumped. Possibly if prodded I'd know more, but that's what comes up off the top of my head.
  • 6 cylinder, and on LPG.
  • well I do know that i haev a V6 engine. does that count. I know this because my car goes alot better than when i have driven a 4 cylinder one. My boyfriend is a Dielsel mechanic (dont know how to spell that) haha so he works on tractors and BIG machines, but he knows how to service cars and stuff... so he does the simple ones on mine and tries really hard to teach me but to be honest i dont really care that much abotu it!!!!
  • V6 engine and 5-speed +6
  • I know how many cylinders I have.. that's about it.
  • I have a toyota V4.. upgrading in a few months to a holden v8.. Can't wait.
  • Diesel. The size of the engine can sometimes be discerned by the numbers of the model . . . like a MBZ E320 is a 3.2 liter engine; S500 is a 5.0 liter. 325 BMW is a 3.2 liter. You usually have either an in-line or V-6 or V-8 engine. V engine just takes up less room and provides more room in the "cabin." I used to sell high line cars for about 15 years.
  • This happened to me when I got an oil change for my boyfriend's car. He asked me, "What size do you need?" So I went to the auto shop and told him what car it was. He found it on the computer and that was it! I still don't know what engine it is though. Not my car either. >.< Haha!
  • My last had a 4JGN bighorn engine.3.2 turbo diesel. It was an Isuzu, I now have a Kia sorento with a 2.5 Turbo diesel engine. 4 Gear Automatic with a sports box so I can force gear changes on downhills when towing. It has high and low ratio gears and optional 4 wheel drive.
  • I have a 4.0 high output motor....It's a V6 but because it's high output it's faster than the v8.....But it is deffinately not faster than the 5.7 Hemi I had a year ago . I also know how to do basic maintenance...change/rotate my tires, change my oil, check all the fluids, service a radiator, bleed brakes, grease hubs, and so on
  • Of course; she's my baby! 3.2 liter; v6.
  • I actually do because my Dad always told me that if I'm old enough to be responsible to drive a car, then i'm old enough to be responsible for the wear and tear of the car - so i can do the basics such as check oil, water, tyre pressure, change wiper blades, light bulbs and also change a tyre (but admit i can't tighten the wheel too tight but it can get me to the nearest garage. I used to moan at my Dad and begrudgingly take part in his 'lessons on car repair' but I've since thanked him when car emergencies have called :-)
  • Ummm lets see last 3 were RR V8 4.4 I think then LR 3.2 straight 6, now MB ML350 V6 3.5 L I assume BUT I would have no idea when or what kind of oil the car takes!!! And if I told a dude what kind of car I drove who worked in the auto dept he had better know what size my engine is he's a dude and that's his job. Maybe he was messing with you.
  • R is for reverse. N for neutral :0 I have no idea what kind of engine I have and after what happened today I should also take a class in the basics. Don't feel bad. A lot of people don't know it.
  • I have a 4 cyclinder, manual transmission, dual overhead cam with 4.3 litre engine, gets about 25pmg around town, with 85000 miles.
  • I have a 2.4L 166 hp 4 cyl i-vtec in one car. The other is a supercharged, 260hp 3.8L 6 cyl Gen III 3800. My husband, however, probably could not answer the question...
  • That is "BUNK" Icy! I worked in the automotive section and all you have to know is the year and kind of car you own and you look it up in the book and it tells you the correct filter you will need. :-) +5
  • I know EXACTLY what engines they have. :-)
  • I have a 6 cylinder 4.0 litre engine.
  • yes!!!! i have a silver engine, oh and it's also got a little black....JKJK i jest 6 cylinder something or other.
  • I know its a 4-cylinder engine & when I take it in for an oil change I assume they'll let me know if it needs a new filter.
  • its a straight six. 10 W 30 works for me.
  • 4.3 V6..:)
  • 2.4 L, I think, not sure...good thing I put the lifetime oil change plan when I bought the car :-)
  • All I know is that: A. My car has one B. It powers the wheels on my bus to go 'round and 'round, 'round and 'round, all through the town. C. I can look up the right filters just buy knowing the make and model and year of my car.
  • Yep!! a working one!!!!!!! :)
