How to identify these engines, sure there are easier ways, but here is the hard way.
Oh yeah, you can see the build date from going underneath the car, you don't need to take it out lol.
VIN decoding may not work for pre 1988 models.
Enter VIN in caps on the Dodge site, or else.

What a very tired 2.5 sounds like
This is my 220,000 mile 2.5 in a Caravan. It's a work rig, gets run WOT a
LOT, loaded with stuff, ladders, people, often well over 2 tons full
weight. It's an 89 with 2.5, 5 speed. Previous owners had overheated
it severely and blown headgaskets, run it without water, and run it leaking
water into the cylinders.
