^Haha, take it easy on him. :lol:

The engine is an inline 4cyl... not a V configuration... therefore its an i4, not a v4. v4's did exist at one time, but they are antiquated motors.

To answer your question, yes, you do have to get under the car, but its not really at the back of the engine. Its underneath the engine right next to the oil pan.

its closer than you think. you dont have to crawl under the engine, you can just reach under it. hint: passenger side, almost under washer fluid reservoir....

Thanks everyone!:D

I know that its not referred to as V-4 just used that last night... the wifes laptop has a "off and on" y button so I just went for the easy way out.. But I will admit I did not know why it was not referred to as v-4 with the whole v formation, inline thingy..

Im not a big mechanical person but ive been trying to get better over the past years just didnt really have anyone to watch or teach me any of that..

But thanks again!!

there's a handful of motorcycles that use V4's still, and i would not be too surprised if they, one day, make a comeback in cars.

They're awfully compact for their displacement.
