Growing up I always heard my dad say how important it is to take good care of your car, if you take good care of it, it will take care of you. Paying attention to my dad paid off one day when I got a flat tire and I was able to change it without his help. His words of wisdom still resonate for for my husband and I. Currently hubby does all the “dirty” work on our cars, both him and I are aware that if we maintain our cars they will give us less issues on the long run. Knowledge is power and specially now a days, my car is over 10 years old and requires synthetic oil, knowing where and when to take it is crucial so that we are unknowingly deceive.
To help protect both you and I, the American Petroleum Institute has establish Motor Oil Matters, or MOM, a new consumer education and industry watchdog program, which stresses the benefits of quality licensed motor oils and call on to the carpet those who engage in deceptive practices.
To make it even easier, MOM has created a checklist to make sure you’re aware of what questions to ask at your next oil change, you can see the checklist below or you can print a PDF File here…
Besides knowing which questions to ask at your next oil change, just be aware that 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.
Finally, the 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.
