City Diesel actuators…. These actuators are the ideal upgraded replacement over the factory, prone to failure, Holset actuators on your 6.7 Cummins trucks.
So we keep ‘em on the shelf ready to go 😎.
And they look awesome on a Fleece Performance Cheetah turbo! 🔥


For all you Cummins lovers with the 68rfe, we do keep thermal bypasses on the shelf as well as the stainless steel filter screws.
On the left, plastic….they crack, break, or allow the filter to thread out and rest on the pan.
On the right…. Stainless steel, easy fix to a big problem. Come see us for your next trans service and eliminate the possibility of some future issues.

To anyone who doesn’t know, last night we celebrated Danny Owens officially retiring. Danny so kindly stepped away from his initial retirement sacrificing his time to help Mason and I get Empire Automotive up and rolling.
The initial plan was 1 year. He stuck it out for 3. Danny is easily one of the most selfless dedicated and generous individuals I’ve ever had the privilege to work along side. What Empire is today and for years to come is a direct reflection of Danny’s skills, knowledge, and methods proven to work and be successful. It’s been a wild ride with all the craziness covid created, growing super fast, forming so many new relationships with customers and dealers, and all the good times and hard.

We love you man. Thank you for everything. And now go enjoy your retirement. We will do anything we ever can for you just give a shout.

Danny is an amazing person. Not enough thanks can ever be said. They truly broke the mold after him.


On this symbolic day, may we celebrate our freedom, salute those who made this possible and keep it safe, and stand in unity as a nation.
​Happy 4th of July to all our customers. Thank you for supporting small businesses like ours.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dedicated fathers and father figures out there! Have a wonderful Father’s Day and know you are appreciated.


While Memorial Day is a time to celebrate the freedom we have in America, we should never forget that that very freedom came at the expense of the brave heroes who lost their lives fighting to protect it. Thank you to those who serve, have served, and will serve.
Wishing everyone a good safe Memorial Day.

When it comes to catching big bass Charlie is the man, as well as a day one customer at the shop; so naturally we were thrilled to sponsor Charlie, and be apart of keeping his rig ready to get him on the water to set the hook on the big one.

We can not stress enough, how important oil changes and routine maintenance is for your vehicles. Especially diesels. When diesel fuel burns it produces soot. Some of that soot clings to the cylinder walls and makes its way in to the oil. Over time if not changed the oil thickens and becomes something much closer to pancake batter than oil. In this state there is virtually no lubricative qualities to the oill and certain to cause catastrophic engine failure. The video below is of just that.


Our hearts go out to the Winkler family and its extended Temple Towing family. The Winkler family and Temple Towing, Inc. as a whole have been beyond helpful and kind to us here at Empire. A phenomenal company founded by phenomenal people. Our hearts and thoughts will be with them as they mourn the loss of Flo.


David found the problem… and fixing cars makes him hungry. 😂

Independence Day represents so much about the American story: freedom, bravery, patriotism, and of course the summer celebrations with family and friends. God bless America and a happy 4th of July to everyone from the Team over at Empire.


Wishing a Happy Father’s Day to the incredible dads out there from the Empire team. A team of fathers who know how wonderful it is to have little hands reaching up to us with sweet little smiles asking for daddy. There is no better feeling.


The automotive world is changing. As a shop you must stay with the times in order to continue to be successful. Hybrids and electric cars are not going away. That has become very evident. We have worked on several hybrids and electric cars here at Empire. Always looking for the opportunity to learn more about the future of auto mechanics we embrace the opportunity.
