VIN# Help

Sorry if in the wrong section, but I didn't really know where to put this.

For my class, I have to breakdown my VIN number and say what each individual digit/letter stands for.

I know what each number is meant to represent, but I cant find a website that will help break it down for me. (Mainly the 4th-8th digits).

I would appreciate any help with this.

Here is my VIN if anybody would like to help:

1 - United States
G - General Motors
1 - Chevrolet
A -
K -
1 -2 Door Coupe
5 -
F -
4 - Security Code
6 - 2006
7 -
6 -
3 -
5 -
3 -

1,2,3 would be what you already have: United States, General Motors, Chevrolet
4,5 is the model which would be cobalt
6 is some form of vehicle feature (1= 2 Door Coupe)
7 is some form of vehicle feature (I haven't found out what exactly for the 5)
8 would be the engine which would mean the F=2.2L if thats the engine you have and I believe so when I searched your vin.
9 is the security code but I don't fully understand what the 4 actually means
10 is the model year (2006)
11 reveals the assembly plant for the vehicle (7- Lordstown Ohio)
12-17 is the cars vehicle serial number

EDIT: Could be wrong on a few of them but this is from a quick search on google

Here is where I found out some more info http://www.(cobalt)(ss)(.)(net)/forums/08-10-ss-turbocharged-general-discussion-152/vin-decoding-167255/
I put parenthases around the websites name so that it could be seen, MODS delete that part if it's unacceptable and against any rules.

2004 Silver SRT4
2006 Laser Blue Cobalt LS

You could also go to a dealer if you have time and they sometimes have a little chart that describes all of this.
