  1. I have been looking for the first car I owned before I went in the Army back in 1970. I still have the original bill of sale with the vin on it.
    Its a 1966 2door hard top Chevy SS Cheville. Problem is they ask for 17 digits. my vin is only 13 digits. Do I need to add the year 1966 to it at the end or the beginning or what number are I missing.
    I’d really like to find the owner and see if they’d be interested in selling it. If not I would love to know if it still around.
    Side note: I only paid $1,175.00 back than. 🙁

I bought one 1969 Ford vehicle from the bailiff in Manitoba but never got ownership (have all legal papers but no ownership and the Ontario DMV can’t give me ont reg. til I have Original reg slip)I do not know if car was ever registered in Manitoba as it was owned by a California man who had married & moved to Winnepeg Manitoba . His name-John Felato

    1. Hello Avery,

      Unfortunately we do not have this information in our database. One possibility is the VIN number we ran in incomplete. We can only lookup vehicle records with VIN numbers that are 17 digits. If the vehicle has never been registered in Manitoba then you will probably have to go through the DMV or contact the owner directly to obtain more information. Check out our Free DMV Finder to locate your local DMV for more information on how to proceed.

  3. My father-in-law purchased in 2002 Ford Explorer, when he purchased the vehicle he was given the title and has since lost the title. I have gone to The DMV with him only to be told that without the previous owners name they cannot do a title search. We went back to the location where the vehicle was purchased and no one knows the gentleman’s name they remember the vehicle but not the gentleman’s name. So we are told that there is nothing they can do we have the van and that’s it

    1. Robert,

      If you discussed this with the DMV then unfortunately that is probably the case if you’re looking to apply for a duplicate title. Do you have the license plate number or VIN number that we can try and assist you with your search? We will also need the state of registration. There are no guarantees but we might be able to locate some additional information for you.

  4. I recently purchased a Volkswagen Passat in Nigeria with a VIN # WVWZZZ3CZ7P062043 that has refused to function properly. I was told the problem is as a result of incompatible engine and transmission ECU, ABS and throttle body. It seems these things had been changed before I bought it. How do I know the manufactures engine number, ABS number, engine and transmission ECU number so I can look for the exact number since they have been replaced in the car with incompatible ones. Thank you

    1. Gabriel,

      You can typically find the VIN number on the engine as well as the dashboard and on the frame of the vehicle on the inside of the door. These should all match up. You might consider taking your Volkswagen to a certified dealership to have them verify this information as it can be difficult to assess if transmission, ECU, ABS and throttle body have been altered or replaced since these components do not have the VIN numbers printed on them.

      How To Find The VIN Number On My Car

      There are typically 3 places where you can find the VIN Number on your Car.
      1. On the driver’s side corner of the dashboard
      2. On the inside frame of the driver’s side door
      3. On the engine block of your vehicle’s engine

  5. I have paid my search fee for the information I am looking for but it was not immediately available. I was told that they were going to update and let me know later. But every time I check they ask for another $2.95. So, what is going on?

    1. Sorry about the inconvenience. I have forwarded your a request to customer support to refund you.

      That being said we can certainly assist you here. What information are you looking for. A VIN number check? or another public record?
