How to determine where 3.6 was made

When I bought my GC a couple of weeks ago it didn't have the window sticker in it so I really don't know which plant my 3.6 V6 was made. I know they make them in the U.S. and in Mexico. Is there some code on the engine number that would tell me?

If you want your Window Sticker, enter your VIN at the end of the following link :

Against the law in most states to sell a new vehicle without the window sticker attached to vehicle or handed to the purchaser. Ask the dealer what gives? Are you positive they didn't give you a previously owned GC?

Re: How to determine where 3.6 was made

Believe me I had the same question! I think somebody may have tried to buy but their credit may have fell through or something. We had looked at it the week before when it was on the lot but the day we went to buy it they couldn't find it! It was in the back part of the lot and not the main section. It only had 12 miles so I don't think it ever left the lot except for a test drive or two. I looked over all paperwork and called the courthouse (got a buddy over there) to run the VIN to make sure it hadn't been titled. Everything checked out but of course the dealership couldn't explain why it hadn't been parked back on the main lot.

Dig around in the glove box. They will often fold them and put them in there.

Re: How to determine where 3.6 was made

Already did with no luck. I do have the online window sticker that the dealer posts with the vehicle that I printed off before I went to buy it. The downside is that online version does not have the country of origin information on it.

Re: How to determine where 3.6 was made

Everything you need to know about your GC:
http://wk2jeeps.com/wk2menu.htm

Everything you need to know about your VIN:
http://wk2jeeps.com/wk2_vin.htm

Finally, use the link on this page to send a note to Jeep Customer service to request a copy of your Build Sheet:
http://www.jeep.com/webselfservice/jeep/index.jsp

I received mine within hours.

They will need to know your name, address, phone number, selling dealer and your VIN number. While you are at it, sign up for a free account on the Jeep.com Owners page and check off which e-mail notifications you want to receive or not in the future, including service bulletins, coupons, etc.

Re: How to determine where 3.6 was made

I finally got a full copy of my window sticker from the dealer. The engine is built in Mexico and the tranny says DE. Would that be Germany?

Re: How to determine where 3.6 was made

The 5-speed transmission attached to the V6 3.6L is Mercedes made, hence why it was made in Germany.
