Default engine identification

I'm new to this forum and a fairly new Rio owner. I recently found out the hard way about my interference engine. After tearing the engine down, I have 3 broken values and a small hole in no. 4 cylinder. The car is a 2002 and is really in good shape. As I have begun my search for an engine replacement or rebuild I need to know what size engine I have, 1.5 or 1.6? I have looked at all my paper work, all over the engine and car, I can't figure it out. Is there an identification cart or something so I can proceed with my repairs? If someone could help in this matter I would really appreciate it, thanks.

I would say you have a 1.5 engine as the 1.6 didn't come out here in the U.S. till 2003. With that said they both will fit as the block is the same.

2001-2002 had a 1.5L and 2003-present have a 1.6L. if you put a 1.6L in your 02 you may have to put an ecu from a 1.6 rio in your car as well because the fuel maps will be slightly different.
