    Vehicle Tips

    According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.

    The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)

    Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.

    Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.

    Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.

    A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.

    Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.

    Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.

    Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.

    Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.

    Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.

    Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.

    Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.

    Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.

    Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.

    Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.

    Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.

    Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.

    Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.

    Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.

    What Our Customers Are Saying

    I have been going to Murphy's since I moved to the area 13 years ago. Mike and Chris are always great about getting our family cars in for maintenance and also for emergency service calls. Dependable and trustworthy. I send all of my family and friends. Murphy's never disappoints! Reasonable prices as well. :)

    I have been going to Mike and Chris for several years and I can't tell you how happy I am that I went in there the first time! You wont find nicer or more honest guys to work on your car. They really go out of their way to fix a problem, answer all your questions and if they feel something major is going on they will let you know if it is an immediate problem or something that can wait a while. Even though their lot is packed with jobs daily they do their best to get the job done everyday and sometimes on Saturday. So take your car in and see what everyone is talking about! You won't be sorry!

    Great Auto Repair
    reviewiconCar & Truck Care, near La Grange Park
    My experience at Murphy`s Auto was nothing but Top Notch. I work local and heard some good reviews about Murphy`s Auto repair. I was having issues with my car. I decided to introduce myself and explain my issue. I made appointment to bring my car in for service. Mike/ Chris explained what the issue was and service was Fantastic! I asked if they foresee any issues that needed attention to. They said with direct confidence"all looks good", that`s what I like about Mike/Chris. I will continue to be a loyal customer for all my maintenance & repair needs. Highly recommend to all local residents.

    Great place to get your car worked on!!!!! HONESTY INTEGRITY, and great service is what you should expect when you go here. Mike is a class act, and will do great work at an affordable price. Do not take your car anywhere else!!!!
    I called Mike Murphy this morning and asked if he could look at the AC unit in my car. He said he would be happy to do so and I dropped off the vehicle. He advised me what the anticipated work would consist of and an estimate of the cost. Two hours later I received a call from his coworker Chris who advised me of the work done and the cost of the service. Overall, great service at a fair price. I highly recommend Murphy's!
    I just had Murphy's transmission and complete auto repair fix my 2004 GMC Savannah box truck. I had 3 other mechanics look at my truck MN a whole bunch of work and tests were done but none of them fixed the problem. Hundreds of dollars and tow fees later. Mike and Chris solved it and fixed the problem. It ended up being a fuel pump. But acted like many other things. Real nice guys also. I'm not taking any of my vehicle's anywhere else in the future.
    Called Murphy's on my way home because I heard my exhaust pipes rattling around. Mike said to come in and he would take a look at it right away. Pulled up 30 minutes before closing and within 3 minutes he found the problem. Told me to leave it with him for about an hour and he would have it fixed. Sure enough, Chris, who was equally as wonderful, called me a little before 6:30 and told me everything was ready! Im so impressed with their service, their professionalism and MOSTLY the price! I fully expected to pay close to $200, cause I'm used to paying a lot for anything car related - but NOT at Murphy's this came in under $100! Thanks for the quick help and for proving to me that Auto Repair doesn't have to break the bank if you go to the right place!
    First time going here to get my car worked on. Some time back I went to a dealership for a recall and they warned me about this possible issue I might have in the future. They were even nice enough to give me a quote of about $1,300 for the job lol. Eventually, I had the issue some days back and I knew it was going to be a bit pricy for what needed to be done. I went to a place I've been before, because in all fairness they are nice and trustworthy people, but wanted $735 for the job. I went across the street to Murphy's and they wanted $580 which was way lower then what I expected. I also knew it take about a day to get done. I received a call a few hours later after bringing it in expecting to be told of another issue, but the call was to tell me my car was fixed. Not only was it the cheapest, but it also worked out well for me because they were able to finish the job in a few hours that day I brought it in. The people here are very nice and friendly as well. I will definitely be bringing my car here for now on.
    Called with an air conditioner issue. they got me in the same day, they explained everything and showed me my old condenser and how it stopped working. After I got home I went to the website and saw the coupons, I called and they gave me the discount. I'd recommended these guys to anyone looking for honest great work. I'll be back.
    I highly recommend Mike for his mechanical expertise and honesty at a great rate. Over the past years he has worked on all three of my vehicle's. Most recent on my 98 chevy Silverado with 193,000 miles. He replaced my spider fuel injecters, because it was flooding my engine. I also had small antifreeze leak from intake for 2 year's. Mike replaced injector pulled intake off and replaced all gaskets, valve cover gaskets, thermostat cap & rotor. Truck runs like new and not a drop on garage floor anymore. Two weeks later ball joint snapped. Another great job done by Mike fixing that! Thanks to Mike & Chris for always showing and explaining why the parts failed. I will not take my vehicle's anywhere elese!!
    After spending $1000.00 at Hawk Dodge Chrysler, for absolutely nothing, I brought my car to Murphy's. I was assured by them that I'd be okay, but Hawk assured me too! Well, I must say that I am as happy with my vehicle as I was the day that I purchased it! Murphy's has gained a forever customer. Mike and Chris are the best! 10 Stars!
    Great service and prices here. Brought my car in for a synthetic oil change and the price was $50 less then what jiffy lube was charging. On that same day I brought my wife's car (after picking up my car) to have the front brakes replaced and I got the car back later that same day and the price was very reasonable. You can tell it is a busy place but they are very patient and were more than willing to answer the questions I had and to go above and beyond to explain everything to me. I won't be shopping around for mechanics anymore. I'll be here every time I need work done.
    Murphy's has been a great mechanic shop to get any car problem fixed. Mike and Chris are the best mechanics in the area and always figure out and explain in detail any problem you can have within your vehicle. They are the most honest as well and I will recommend them to anyone in the area for the best service.
    I would highly encourage anyone that needs repairs to take their vehicle to Murphy's Transmission. Mike & Chris have earned my full and complete trust! I would rather pay them a visit than the Cadillac service center for ongoing maintenance. You will not be disappointed! You can tell they put a lot of pride into their work. I had a great consultation with Mike and found him to be honest and reliable. Thank you so much!
    Have been going to Mike since his inception in LaGrange Park. Never had less than 100% satisfaction. Very knowledgeable and truly nice people to deal with both Mike and Chris. You will never be sorry going to Murphys!
    Best mechanics in town!!!
    Chris and Mike are THE BEST mechanics around! Everyone I know takes there vehicles to Murphy's. A good, fair, and honest mechanic is hard to come by. Not at Murphy's! You guys are the best!
    Mike and Chris are both very knowledgeable and honest. Always done right the first time at a reasonable price.
    Had a complete brake job done this morning on a recommendation of a friend. Mike and Chris we both extremely nice and very professional. Would recommend them to anyone.
    You fixed what they said couldn't be fixed! Thanks Mike for solving the problem with my car. I'm just mad that I didn't take it to you a long time ago! With a German car, people told me I needed to go to a specialty mechanic. Turned out I just needed to go to one who knew what he was doing! Thanks for the fast turnaround and the honest work. I'll be back.
    We have been going to Murphys for many years for our cars and our children's cars maintenance. Very good mechanics and really nice people.
    My Wife and I just bought a car for our son's. What is special about this car is our older son traveled in this vehicle when he was a baby as it belonged to his Grandfather. The car is a 2000 and I remember when my Father-in-law drove it off the lot. Needless to say it needed some work. Mike and Chris took the time to make sure the car got what it needed to make it safe for our boys. Not only was the work fairly priced, it was done in a timely manner with care and with complete professionalism. Now our boys will be driving the same car they cruised in with Grandpa. Thank you to Mike, Chris and Murphy's! I will definitely recommend you to anyone. Great job!
    Been going to Mike at Murphy's since their inception. Always treated fairly. The best mechanics I've ever had in my life. Would and have recommended potential customer.
    Mike, the owner, worked his butt off to track down my electrical problem in our 2003 Buick Rendezvous with 220,000 miles on it. He knew the limited value of the car and kept the cost down to a level well below what I expected to pay. Most impressive, however, was his level of determination to solve the problem ...This guy has skill and integrity -- a rare and valuable combination in this field.
    The service is stellar. They always go just a little beyond whether its a small fix or information. The staff is friendly and professional. They know their stuff! They were highly recommended to me by a friend, and I would do the same for anyone else.
    Great job on my Mother's 66' Caprice turbo 400. Thanks Mike, Chris and Frank.
    I have been taking my two cars to Murphy's almost since they first opened on 31st and 25th. They have gone out of their way to find parts and repair my 1995 Saturn coupe. They are now servicing my "daily driver" a new Mazda 3. They are fair, prompt, and convenient for me. Chris and Mike are great guys in my book. I give them 5 stars.
    Chris has always been super nice and supper helpful with my car iv gone to him and Mike twice for my car and they were very helpful . Thank you guys for all your hard work and time for fixing my car I would recommend Murphy's to anyone who is having car problems and would consider coming back again in the future.
    Very nice people, fair prices, quick service.
    I don't know much about cars mechanically so having a trustworthy mechanic is vitally important to me. After several different places throughout the years I have finally found Murphy's Transmission and have been going there for a few years now. Their both great but, I usually deal with Chris, who is awesome. He has given me advice on how to prevent and maintain my car to avoid having mechanical problems, and once even advised that I don't do an expensive repair to fix a small leak, but instead just said to check the fluid every couple of weeks and I add just a little bit of fluid once a month instead of a very expensive repair. I trust them completely and recommend them to anyone for any mechanical auto work.
    Chris and Mike are some of the most incredible people and mechanics on the planet. Not only are they honest, but they're also fair. They truly want nothing but the best for their customers and strive to ensure that every car that comes into their shop goes out as good as new. Quickly too. If you're willing to work with them, then they'll work their ass off for you. They've even stayed long after hours on multiple occasions to have my car ready that night for pickup. I will always appreciate them. Always.
