Can you tell transmission type from Vin?

I found a 99 3800 with a 466e. I was wondering how to tell which trans is in it. I have the vin number, the owner told me it was a 4 speed

If you call International and give them the vin they can tell you.

The online decoders will not give transmission info.

You got the good tranny with 6 speeds even though it has only 5 open now. Follow the unlock threads to see how you can gain the extra overdrive and save in fuel economy.

Often VIN decoder/build sheets will not list the specific tranny in them. you have an 1996 International 3800, Navistar 444/V8, air brakes, made in Springfield ,Ohio. You need to run the VIN on the chassis for the tranny info.

Will see the bus on wednesday and check, do you know where about at the chassis is it locate? Also the tranny should have a plate somewhere thought? Cheers Volker

So its a AT545... . The only information Im still try to find is the diff ratio. Is that something the VIN is telling? Btw found a VIN on the chassis but it is actuall the same as on the plates. Cheers Volker

Axle ratio should be on a badge above the windshield.

I've not had one yet with that, but I've seen it on Bluebirds I think.

My axles all have the ratio on the housing on a tag.
