To keep your vehicle running at peak performance, we provide undercar services that include:
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly decelerating by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop. With this system, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road while braking. Failure of the anti-lock brakes could lead to an increase in the risks of multiple vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes. To avoid this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and repaired by experts. At Empire Automotive, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS - keeping you safe.
A brake is a mechanical device for slowing or stopping a vehicle (usually by means of friction). In short, a brake inhibits your car's motion. It lets you stop the car whenever and wherever you choose. Brakes are one of the most important parts of a motor vehicle. Without them, you would not be able to stop the car. If your vehicle's brakes are having issues, consider having them worked on. Brake experts at Empire Automotive can work on your car's brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.
A chassis is the car's internal framework that supports the body and other parts like the wheels, engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate to a weak car. To have a strong and properly working vehicle, have your car's chassis checked for defects. At Empire Automotive, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.
The differential is a car part that compensates for the difference in travel distance between the inner wheels and outer wheels when the vehicle is turning. Due to the differential's position in most non-four-wheel-drive (FWD) vehicles (located at the rear and under the car), it does not get any of the star treatment the engine gets. The one thing that every car owner needs to know is that failure of the differential will mean failure of the car. To save the differential from failure, you need to have differential fluid changed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Changing the oil on the differential is as important as changing the car's engine oil. Although checking and changing differential oil is pretty easy, you need to visit an auto shop to get a comprehensive differential flush. For differential flush services, visit or call Empire Automotive in Port St Lucie, FL 34984 today.
The differential transfers the engine power to the wheels. One important function of the differential is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds - thus the name differential. When turning, the outer wheels travel a larger distance than the inner wheels do (also the front wheels travel a longer distance than the rear wheels). This means that all four wheels travel at different speeds during a turn and this is where the differential comes in to help. To make sure your vehicle's differentials are working properly, have them checked regularly. Contact Empire Automotive today for differentials examination and servicing.
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at Empire Automotive, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine - usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, it is better - for you, your car, and the environment. Empire Automotive has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do this by converting kinetic energy to another form of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle's shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit Empire Automotive today.
Much like a shock absorber (shocks), your car's struts provide a dampening effect as you travel over a road's surface. By absorbing the shock of the road, struts allow passengers to ride in a car without constant and uncomfortable motion. Struts work a bit differently than shocks in that they provide structural support for your car's suspension. This means that struts support your car's weight, unlike shocks which only regulate the speed at which the weight is transferred. Struts usually last around 50,000 or 60,000 miles. This is simply because the damping characteristics of the parts gradually deteriorate over time. Call Empire Automotive at 772-370-8564 if you have questions about the struts on your car. Our expert technicians will diagnose any problems and help you make an informed decision about repairs.
As tires get older, they lose traction and deteriorate from the inside out, increasing the likelihood of a tire bursting. This can cause a rapid loss of control of your vehicle. To have a better performing vehicle, you need to make sure the tires are in good condition. For all your tire needs, contact Empire Automotive today.
This is the best place to take your vehicle. John is honest and does great work!
John is honest & affordable. I don't take my SUV anywhere else but to him since I found him.
I had my car serviced here last week. The axle on my car broke, and I have to say this was the best experience ever! John is an honest mechanic. As a woman, you get nervous thinking that you'll be taken advantage of. That was not the case at Empire Automotive. John figured out my problem quickly and had my car ready in a day! His prices beat anyone in labor, and he didn't try to sell me services I didn't need. If you are looking for a reliable, honest and reasonably priced mechanic, look no further. Thank you John!
The owner is quick, understanding and very personable and professional! He knew exactly what to do with my car and it's working great! I'd recommend this shop to everyone!
Such a great experience! Very reasonable and honest!
John was wonderful and fair! He kept within the time frame promised which is important to me with two small kids. I would highly recommend him to everyone!
John is a great, honest mechanic. He won't lie to you and try to get you to do a bunch of repairs you don't need at outrageous prices. I took my car to a few places before a family member recommended Empire. When I took it to John, he told me exactly what the one problem was, and his price to fix it was about half of what others were quoting. I will always bring my car to him from now on, from the smallest thing like an oil change, to whatever other problems may come. Very highly recommend Empire. You won't be dissatisfied.
Thank you so much for taking care of Kayla!! We greatly appreciate it! Honest work, thanks again!
John is amazing. He has always been able to fix any issues we have had with my Expedition and LandRover. He is very affordable and does a great job! Wouldn't trust anyone else!!
I've been in the automotive repair industry for 30 years. Known John since 2008. Was his supervisor for 5 years. I can go anywhere, I know guys in the business. I go here. I trust John. Smart, fair, and a nice guy.
John is very honest and clear about what he does with your car, what he checked for and what he recommends. Plus we didn't have to wait hours. Will always go back to Empire for my auto needs!
Everyone is always looking for an honest and affordable mechanic. Well look no further because John is exactly that. I wouldn't recommend anyone else!!!
