To find out which type of engine your Ford Taurus has, you can pop the hood and search for a label on the engine. You can also identify the engine type with the 17-digit vehicle identification number, or VIN. A unique VIN is assigned to each vehicle and provides information about the vehicle, including engine type.

Step 2

Visit and enter the VIN number for the Ford Taurus into the designated search box.

Step 3

Click "Enter." You will receive a vehicle summary that lists the type of engine the car possesses, such as 3.5L V6.
