I bought an engine from a shop. Engine code: 10DM6 N161681531. The car was totaled and the shop was able to keep the engine/trans. They never used the engine, later they did some house cleaning and sold this engine to me. They don't remember what it's out of. Well, some say Malibu, some say Equinox. Anyway, I'm needing it for a project. Anyone know how to decode this engine number? Thanks!

Do you have any other images of the engine? How old is it? 4 cylinder or V6?

Is there a number stamped into the block somewhere?

I'm still trying to confirm, but it appears to be a 2.4L Direct Injection (LEA) from a Chevy Equinox/Buick Verano (among a few others). The side view photo with the throttle body is a dead ringer for this GM image.

*Update: I'm about 95% sure that's an LEA 2.4L DI like I thought. The port injected 2.4L in the Malibu did not have a sound deadening cover surrounding the throttle body area.
