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.

Chris was on-time, friendly and very efficient! I don't like dealing with car issues and this made the experience so much nicer. He was quicker than the quoted estimated time, and was very helpful when answering the few questions I had.

All about Serpentine/Drive Belt Replacement

The serpentine/drive belt or v-belt is a rubber belt that connects the alternator, power steering, and AC to the part of the engine (crankshaft) which transfers the power from the engine to those components. Without this belt, the battery will not get charged and none of the electrical accessory components in the car will work. The serpentine belt and v-belt are also known as "drive belts." Because of the high amount of heat in the engine, the belt can develop cracks over time and eventually break. If the belt breaks, the steering wheel will be difficult to turn and driving will be hazardous. In some cars, water pumps are driven by the drive belts. If the belt breaks, water and coolant needed to keep the engine cool will not properly flow to the engine. The engine will overheat, potentially causing severe damage.
