    Default Identify C4 Model?

    So I bought a c4 a few months ago, under the impression it was a 1.6L engine as the dealer told me. I then looked at my rego papers and it said it was a 2.0L engine.

    I am now worried as I have it insured as a 1.6L and obviously that isn't good if it's a 2!

    I have looked everywhere on the car but can't find anything stating what sized engine it is. I looked in the manual and the engine looks like the diagram for the 2.0L but there were some slight differences so I cannot be sure.

    The VIN number when decoded comes up with an error so I am at a loss as how to identify what model the car is.

    If anyone could help me out that would be great, here is a picture of the engine:- Album on Imgur

    Can take other pictures if necessary.

    Thank you very much

    I've been putting petrol in it for the last few months so certainly hope it ain't a diesel

    That manifold certainly looks like a petrol engine. Certainly doesn't look like the NFU 1.6 litre engine to me.

    There will be an engine code in your VIN number. If you post or PM me all of your VIN, then service citroen should decode it and I will be able to download the whole build sheet for the car.

    To PM go to the Nav Panel and under Community hit Send New Message. If you put Ken W into the recipeint field it will get to me. Include your email in the PM so I can send you the build file.

    Cheers,

    Ken W

    Your site doesn't display at all on my current machine, and I'm not going to start another..... (it says to decode XHTML 1.0 Strict but it looks like it isn't)

    However, post the 6th to 8th letters of the VIN (eg RFN), and we'll know without doubt.

    Rob I know it's widely used. But I need to start another machine with a less conscientious browser that makes better guesses at funny code. You'd be surprised how few major sites are error-free. They are usually Linux and coder's sites, where someone's reputation is at stake.

    Back to the C4. From comments above I'm wondering if it is a 1.6 Prince (EP6 series) engine - the VIN will disclose it. How old is the car?

    Also, if you want to be really sure, just take it straight back to the dealership from where you bought it from, they'll soon tell you and if it's a 1.6L and the registration papers are saying it's 2.0L, then there was an error made from the registration clerk on when they registered your car, so if that's the case, then the dealership will need to fix that up, not you, because they are the ones that made the error.

    Trust me, I know, I do stock control and registrations for a Mazda dealership and if we've made an error with entering in the VIN, engine numbers, number of cylinders and so on, then it's us that has to fix the error up, which results in a lot of paper work!!

    Could be a rego error. The maker puts the C4 VIN in a panel under the windscreen. There will be no errors there.

    Then the whole way run you run browsers would seem to quite illogical for general web use.
    When surely the sensible intent is to display all webpages in a readable manner.

    It seems to me to be a Pyrrhic victory to be aware of every defect in coding and not be able to display the webpage.

    And yes, there lot of imperfect coding but it's something most browsers can cope with.

    Rob, I thought I had hinted that I am on an unusual machine at the moment. It is a coder's machine, scripted to hell, and designed to report errors, not ignore them. My browser has a number of user scripts running, and three separate windows. It will not show Imgur because it baulks. I like to read web sites as much as you do, and have forgiving browsers on another box - Opera, then 2 Firefox, 3 Konqueror, and last Chromium. Lynx, Pale Moon and Seamonkey are there too, and some others. I look forward to the day when Vivaldi comes out of beta, because so far it's very promising. I would like to default to it one day.

    I'll let you persevere with you "stage shows", animals and elements browsers.

    I'm happy to run chrome, firefox and when all else fail internet destroyer. And rest assured I can view any website where the webserver is online.

    Variety is sometimes nice but change for the sake change achieves little.

    VM ware let's me do my experimenting with linux mint (and XP and ME and DOS 6.22) without even rebooting.

    Thanks Addo.

    Rob, enough. pond. (And there are sites where you won't ever get on board, by design. Others are booby trapped).

    Now here is the pot calling the kettle black: admonish me but never miss the chance to have the last word.

    BY the way I keep away from the websites you talk of. The are zero interest to me. Whatever floats your boat.
