Cool Re: Renault - Espace - Engine Identification

hi, I think you'll find that the 2l 16v Petrol Engine is the F4R. If you look at the metal plate that is stuck on the inside pillar of the drivers door it should give you what I have always known as 'the oval plate number'. This is also part of the VIN. On my current diesel Espace it is JEOE but i had a 2l 16v one and that was JEON.

If you use this code, you can usually find out everything about your model, ie Engine Type, Gearbox type and the like. You can always call your local Renault Dealer and if you give them this code and your registration number they'll be able to tell you this info.

Hope this helps.
