Well, telling us the year of the car would help. [img]graemlins/.gif[/img]

A 4.3 V8 was ONLY installed in 1994-1996 Caprices. It would have a "W" as the eighth digit.

A 305 (5.0), which has been used since the '70s, would have an "E" as the eighth digit, at least since 1991. I don't know about other letters for the box-body Caprices.

Are you talking about a box-body that may have had the 4.3 V6? That should be easy to tell; it would only have 6 plug wires.

Year, make, and model please!
