I do not pretend to know anything about automobiles. Like many in my case, I often just take my car to my dealer or the nearest lube station and trust they’ll give me the best oil change ever.
I had no idea there was a checklist I was supposed to follow! All I knew was that whenever the little man popped up amid my dashboard warning lights, it would be time to take my car in for an oil change.
Take note of this little nugget: AAA expects between the major summer holidays of Memorial Day and Labor Day to aid over eight million motorists, and cautions drivers that auto maintenance is key to avoiding summertime travel breakdowns. Ensuring quality motor oil in your car is one way to prevent road trip problems.
It’s important that your motor oil meets certain standards. Get the wrong kind of oil in your car and it will cause carbon buildup and, as a friend of mine explained, “gum up your oil filter and not get enough oil through to your engine.”
Service-locators can be quick to offer discounted services to people who are looking to reduce their automotive maintenance costs. Make sure your service provider is pouring quality motor oil into your car before you decide on a cheaper deal.
To make sure you are getting exactly what you need, Motor Oil Matters has made this handy Oil Change Checklist that you can print out and bring with you next time you get your car serviced. It includes important questions to ask your service technician. Motor Oil Matters also has a handy Oil Change Location Search Tool where you can enter your ZIP and immediately find API-licensed technicians who are MOM-approved!
With that said, MOM wants your next oil change to be free with a $50 prepaid Visa! Just follow the instructions below for your chance to win!!! Good luck on the road and in the giveaway!
