Jamahl

I needed a Pre-purchase Inspection on a BMW E85 Z4 3.0si, and since the top motor was being replaced it needed to be a the dealership where the car is located. Jamahl called to say he arrived early, but I missed the call. He called me again after it was completed, and basically confirmed my thoughts on the car, besides cosmetic things it was in very good condition. It's getting new tires and softtop motor, and Inspection II is due which I already due. The dealership tech said he was cordial, efficient and professional. Those are hallmarks of an excellent technician. At the end my phone consult with Jamahl, I asked him if I can request him going forward to work on my Z4, he agreed and told me the steps required for it. I will request his services going forward. Excellent service.

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.
