He seems professional. I paid for the lights to be addressed and they are all still on including a low engine oil light. He said he would return to check it out further after his next appointment but I did not hear back from him. I was told by BMW that the power steering fluid needs to be drained, flushed and refilled. He sucked it out with a hose twice and this will not ensure that the oil that was accidentally placed in there would be completely removed. I am no mechanic but I am going off of what BMW told me. I wanted to get a lot more work done. I want all the lights to be addressed and fixed so I started with the check engine lights to be looked at and not just reset. I want everything to be fixed. Thank you

I can't ask for anything more for the professional job that Jay had done on my car, replacing the front struts on my BMW. Very friendly from the start and without hesitation he answered all questions I have about the work to be done which boosted my confidence and resulted in an excellent job. Well done and thank you so much, Jay! Very glad I found YourMechanic to save me a fortune that dealer shop was charging me for the same work.

He did an excellent job with my pre-purchase inspection and saved me a lot of money, identifying problems that I would not have been able to catch. The convenience of being able to send a mechanic straight to the dealership was huge! Would definitely recommend both Eugenio and this site to anyone!

All about Drive Belt Tensioner Replacement

A Drive Belt Tensioner is a pulley mounted to either a spring mechanism or to an adjustable pivot point that is used to keep constant tension on your serpentine belt. That is the big long belt in the front of your engine. The tensioner rides on the outside surface of the belt to put pressure, or tension, on the belt and against the pulleys that drive things like the alternator, power steering, air conditioner, etc.
