Do I need to disclose an engine replacement when part exchanging a car?

I have recently had a new engine fitted to my car under the manufacturer warranty at just 13000 miles. When i come to part exchange it am i obliged to tell the dealer about it?

You are under no obligation at all to disclose this - but depending on the make and model it may be a selling point. If it is a car with a "wet belt" timing belt then a new, revised engine is a good thing. Either way, if you are part-exchanging the car it shouldn't have any real impact on its value.
