Herndon Auto Service-Fresno
SUPERIOR MECHANIC WORK & VERY COMPETITIVE PRICES AT HERNDON AUTO SERVICE IN FRESNO:[SPECIALIZING IN MERCEDES BENZ]On May 8, 2017, I brought my Mercedes Benz 300E 2.6 to Herndon Auto Service located on Herndon & Maroa due to the engine light turning red during the weekend and the warning light activated which warned me that some lights needed to be replaced. I contacted Ricky Altero, the owner, on Saturday, May 6, 2017 regarding all these issues. Ricky answered his cell phone during the weekend and guaranteed me that he would provide me with his own truck during the time that my vehicle would be in his shop for repairs. When I arrived on Monday morning to bring in my vehicle, Ricky had his truck parked and ready for me to take. There have been numerous times throughout the years that Ricky has even loaned me his own sports Mercedes Benz when my vehicle has needed repair work.Arturo Alvarez, the top technician and supervisor from Herndon Auto Service, was honest and sincere with me and immediately informed me that he would replace my Engine Codes 16 EGR and Vacuum Change over-valve. Arturo Alvarez even cleaned the EGR pipe which required an additional hour of labor but didn’t charge me for this additional hour. How many dealerships would perform extra work at no cost like Herndon Auto Service? Also, both Arturo and Ricky exhibited extreme care and cleanliness to my vehicle which has been regarded for so many people throughout Fresno as one of the cleanest Mercedes Benz they have ever seen. I highly recommend Herndon Auto Service, because they take pride in all of their work, have very competitive prices, and take care of matters in a very professional and timely manner. Every single time that I have brought my vehicle to Herndon Auto Service, I feel like I am treated by Ricky Altero, Arturo Alvarez, and all the technicians as a VIP.I will continually take my Mercedes Benz to your # 1 DEALERSHIP IN FRESNO: (559)-431-3556!!!!!Donald Rotella

Tips & Advices
In some cases, it's worth repairing an old alternator. If some parts go bad, they can be inexpensive to repair. For example, alternator belts can be quite cheap, and parts and labor for handling this repair will run you between $100 and $125 for most vehicles, which is significantly less than the cost of a new alternator. If the total cost of the repair exceeds 50 percent of the cost of replacing the alternator, it makes sense to invest in a new alternator.
If your car's alternator has gone bad, you may be able to squeeze in a short journey, but the car's battery will drain very quickly without the alternator's support. Stop-and-go traffic will place even more pressure on the battery, and so will using auxiliary items such as the radio, air conditioning, heater, windshield wipers, and headlights.
A one-wire alternator is a type of alternator that can be easily put into place with the installation of a single wire. The key benefit that these alternators bring is that they are simple to install.  However, many one-wire alternators provide low output when the car's engine is idle, and this can burden the car's electrical system if you're idling at a red light with the headlights and stereo on. Some one-wire alternators also require you to rev the car's engine to a certain rpm to activate the alternator and begin the charging process.
The most common cause of alternator failure is a weak battery. Your car's alternator works very hard to keep your car's battery fully charged, and, if the battery is weak, it can put a great deal of stress on the alternator. The alternator will increase its output to try and keep the battery charged, and this will eventually overtax the alternator and cause it to fail prematurely.
Your alternator's regulator is an automotive part that monitors and oversees the process by which your car's battery is charged. The regulator also supports the alternator by reducing the stress that is placed on the alternator's drive belts, tensioning pulley, and bearings. The regulator may be located inside or outside of the alternator's housing.
