Liters refers to the total volume of all cylinders measured when the pistons are at the lowest point they can go, this point is called bottom dead center. It's the displacement

Engine displacement is the volume swept by all the pistons inside the cylinders of an internal combustion engine in a single movement from top dead centre (TDC) to bottom dead centre (BDC). It is commonly specified in cubic centimeters (cc), litres (l), or (mainly in North America) cubic inches (CID). Engine displacement does not include the total volume of the combustion chamber

Hope this helped you abit

I believe the liters of an engine corresponds to the displacement of the engine. Meaning a 3.8l has 232 cubic inches of displacement
