    The block casting number is on the back of the driver side head. You'll need a small mirror and a flashlight to have any hope of seeing it. I think we have casting numbers on here somewhere - I'll go look.

    Thanks! Any idea what the casting number for a 5.3L would be? Sorry for all the annoying little questions, but I'm looking into finally buying my first 4th gen Trans Am and I want to make sure everything checks out, It has 164,000 mile on it buy the dealer only wants $4,500 for it but I've noticed a few problems, the biggest one being it won't pass smog, any idea what could cause that if the check engine light is off? That won't matter where I live though, I just know the dealer will never be able to sell it in Vegas because of this problem.

    I would need to dig out my books to verify -- can do that this evening if we get home at a decent time.

    First thing to look at is whether there are catalytic converters under the car. Does the SES light come on when you energize the ignition? If not, the bulb could be blown... or removed from the cluster intentionally. Can you scan the car for codes?
