The Procedure One Has To Go Through In Carrying Out An Engine Change

This article should read in conjunction with another article, probably written earlier. The article in question was entitled “The 10 Points  Check At Puspakom”.

Today’s article will touch on what are the requirements needed to submit changing new engines into a present vehicle you may possess.

Basically, the forms and documents required are as follows:

i) Pemberitahuan Penukarn Enjin Kenderaan (Lampiran A/ Arahan Jabatan 13/90).

ii) Borang JPJ 8 (Pind. 1/05).

iii) Owner’s Mykad (Photostat) 2 copies either certified by a Commissioner of Oaths or a J.P.J. official.

iv) Original copy of Registration card and one Photostat copy.

v) Letter of Authority from owner should you be acting on his / her behalf.

All forms should ideally filled in properly prior to your presenting your vehicle for inspection to the Puspakom authorities.

There is however, another set of forms and documents which are also required besides the above J.P.J. requirements. This refers to documents and receipts which the mechanic or workshop has to provide you.

Together with all the documents the J.P.J. needs, only then are you capable to process the engine replacement of your vehicle.

What are the documents that you need from your mechanic or workshop?

Amongst them would include:

i) Declaration of Goods Imported (it refers to the engine that is imported).

ii) Photocopy of Receipt of Goods Imported.

iii) Receipt from the Purchase of your engine. This receipt is valid for 7 days only.

A driver is advised to bring along both the J.P.J. forms duly filled together with the relevant document supplied by your mechanic upon sending your vehicle for inspection at Puspakom.

Upon completion of inspection at the Puspakom centre, you will be issued a certificate verifying that your vehicle has passed the centre’s 10 points inspection test.

Upon receiving the above certificate, a driver must next take steps to inform your insurance agent regarding the change of engine. The insurance agent will them make the necessary engine change. A new set of engine number will then be entered into your vehicle’s records.

Varying from company to company, insurance companies charge anything from RM20 – Rm30 for doing the above.

The final step is for you to bring along all the documents to the nearest J.P.J. centre to facilitate the change of engine numbers. The insurance company will probably supply you a copy of a letter advising the J.P.J. of the latest engine change.

The J.P.J. may decide to issue you a new Registration Card or JPJK2 or otherwise.

These are the steps and procedures a driver has to go through should he decide to undergo an engine change or his vehicle.

Finally, before I forget, the insurance company normally charge RM20 – RM30 for alternations made in your insurance records and the issuance of a letter advising the J.P.J. pertaining to engine change.
