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.

Pete was great! I got an oil change and tire rotation on my BMW 328i. Pete arrived a few minutes early, worked fast, and was friendly. He even helped me out by providing me the service engine warning light codes since he needed to clear my oil change light anyways. I'd highly recommend Pete!

I thought David was great. He was very courteous and professional. He did a pre-used car inspection for me on May 7, 2016. However, I filled the vehicle with gas yesterday and it has serious gas leak. So this is an aspect of his inspection that he missed. Again, I thought he was very professional and would recommend him. But any such inspections in the future should include the gas tank.

All about Axle/CV Shaft Assembly Replacement

Axle shafts are commonly referred to as “CV axles” or “half-shafts.” An axle shaft is a narrow, pole-like part that connects a wheel to the gears in the transmission. Axles are part of the system that enables the wheels to rotate. One end of the axle shaft is connected to the transmission and the other end is connected to the wheel. The transmission rotates the axle shafts, which rotates the wheels. Without the axles, the tires will not rotate and the car will not move. Axle shafts are comprised of four components: shaft, CV joints, grease and the boots (grease container). The most common reason for the axle to fail is because of the torn boots (grease leaking out). Without the grease, the CV joints will not get lubricated, dirt will enter the joint and the whole axle will eventually wear out.
