Jonathan was just AWESOME on the service (oil change) he did on my BMW. I am truly impressed. Any other service that I would need with my bimmer, I am gonna ask for him. After the oil change, my car had a oil leak and I got my Brake light and Check Brake fluid light. At first I thought it was due to oil change. Later Jonathan came back again the next day and identified the it was brake oil leak. He got the place of leak within few minutes, which no other mechanic could do. This guy knows so much about German cars. Glad to have got him work on my car.

All about Alternator Replacement

The alternator is the component that charges the battery in your car. When you use electrical components in your car (stereo, lights, etc.), the battery loses power. The alternator recharges the battery, replenishing the lost battery power. The alternator is located in the engine compartment. If the alternator is not working properly, your car will only stay running for as long as the battery has power stored. Once the battery loses power, your car will not start. Normally, a malfunctioning alternator will turn on the battery warning light or will have a low volt gauge reading.
