    thats one thing i never pay attention to because well its kinda right but kinda stupid because thats down to a T of where it was Built wat kinda EPA stuff it got. Not including every exact option your truck has.

    Re: Vin decoder Find out what options your truck came with, and how many got that opt

    Many VIN's are not reflected in the records at compnine, so don't believe the stats on how many vehicles came with that particular set of options. I've used it to check VIN's on probably about 40 vehicles and maybe 1/4 of them or more were not listed. It isn't a secret; they readily admit the records aren't complete. Seems like the older the vehicle (late 80's for example) the less likely they are to have it. Same goes for running a VIN through GM; I had similar results. Surprisingly even some newer ones couldn't be turned up with GM like a 1997 model.

    Not picking away at it; it's a great free service.

    The only vehicles I've ever not gotten results for are 80's trucks, a cab-over (GMC/Isuzu), or a mistyped VIN by a seller that I would correct...... 0/O, 1/I, 8/B type of thing.

    I'm talking about entering VIN's right out of my inventory spreadsheet, which I could compare to the title on file. The late 80's commonly didn't come up, but that 1997 not being on file really surprised me. Pissed me off too as someone had stolen the glovebox so I didn't have a SPID label anymore. Was able to pull up its service history but no build report.

    V02 RADIATOR,HEAVY DUTY,INCLUDES HEAVY DUTY TRANSMISSION OIL COOLER HVY DUTY RAD & TRANS OIL CLR(V02)

    Does this equate to any sort of aftermarket tranny cooler that one would consider installing, or what? Should I be glad to have this, or am I misunderstanding the situation?

    It's primarily a GM website......... so you won't have any success with Ford vins there. Ford does has a vin decoder, Though.

    I've got that bookmarked, too.

    Goodyear and Gates also have vin lookup's on there websites.

    Edit: Mmmm, maybe it wasn't Gates, I don't see web access to it now......... either they've limited access to it now, or it was another company. I've been using the Goodyear one recently.
