Understood the vehicle and was professional the entire time he worked on it. He diagnosed the problem and helped identify other problem areas that were hurting the cars performance. My car runs exceptionally well now. Next time I'm stuck with a problem and need a mechanic who understands German cars I will call Chet. My car: 1998 BMW 740i 120,000 miles on it. The work done by Chet: chased and diagnosed an electrical problem that was messing up the air fuel ratio causing the car to not operate.

All about Alternator Repair

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.
