I'm shopping for a new pickup, is there a place to lookup truck options by VIN number? Also where do I go to find out if the truck has a LB7 or LLY engine? Sorry I'm a rookie with Chey's/GMC's

HI LOSTBUCKAROO & FIRST THINGS FIRST! Welcome to our site & may you get all your questions answered quickly & correctly!! As far as Vin# info, the vin will only tell you what kind of truck it is. Chevy/GMC. / 2WD/4WD. Regular Cab, Extended cab or Crew cab. Also what engine & trans. is in it? Unless you are getting a 6 sped manual transmission, you will be getting a LBZ engine! If you get the stick shift, you will get a LLZ.

As far as the VIN number for the type of engine, look at the 8th digit:

1=LB7
2=LLY

If it is a letter, LBZ. I just brainfarted and can't remember what a LBZ is maybe D?
