How many cylinders does it have? The 5S-FE is a straight four cylinder engine. The 1MZ-FE is a V6 engine.


Have you checked your VIN number? There's a good chance that the 5th character will answer your question: a G for a 5S-FE or an F for a 1MZ-FE.

Those codes are valid in the US after 1996. Your mileage may vary depending on your location and from where the car was originally sourced.


Some Toyota model of that vintage have a data plate on the firewall inside the engine compartment (my 1987 Land Cruiser have one) which list model number, paint color, transmission and engine number.

EDIT: Here's the details and seems that prior 1989 models have the engine model on the data plate:
