I have to add oil once a month. I had it checked and there is not a leak.

The car idles high with surges and then Boggs down below 1000rpm. It idles at below or just at 1000. When taking off it rev high and then Damn near stall. If you stop it will stall but keeping the motor art 1100 rpm keeps it from dieing out completely.

N12 engine, is this the time frame that the timing/tension belt needs replacing? Things that I should look out for to negotiate pricing?

We have replaced the thermostat and also the water pump

today the light came on and when I shut the car off the fan kept running for about 5 minutes

Soon after it started making this clack, clack, clack sort of a sound. I checked my owners manual and it said red battery light means the battery is no longer being charged, there may be an alternator malfunction. I've only had my 2009 Mini Cooper for about 1yr and 4mo. it has 40,000 or so miles on it.
Any ideas what is going on with it, what caused it, and about how much it's going to cost me?
