    Look for the VIN number on the engine when you find it look for the 10th digit. Well it actually should be a litter But the tenth will tell you what year it is. Here is a little Decoder I guess to help you determine the year.

    A- 1980
    B-1981
    C-1982

    You get the idea but here is around what yours should be

    L-1990
    M-1991
    N-1992
    O-1993
    P-1994
