Motor Oil Matters | $50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway!

If you are like me, you know absolutely nothing about servicing your vehicle except it is time to do it. Making decisions on products and knowing if it is done correctly can be confusing. That is why Motor Oil Matters, or MOM, a new consumer education and industry watchdog program by the American Petroleum Institute, has been established. They stress the benefits of quality licensed motor oils and call on to the carpet those who engage in deceptive practices!

With the summer driving season ramping up, MOM wants to remind you to be in the know when it comes to motor oil changes. To make sure you’re aware of what questions to ask at your next oil change, MOM has provided this checklist.

Motor Oil Matters, MOM's Oil Change Checklist

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.

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.

    My car is not ready for an oil change, however, when the last guy changed the oil he put 25K miles (I wish!) and it should have been 75K miles…just keepin’ track!

  2. Misty Simpson says

    Way overdue for one actually. We just moved to a new state a couple of months ago and money has been extremely tight so that has had to be put on the back burner for right now.

  3. Mary Beth Elderton says

    Not yet. We had it done recently and haven’t made any trips. We will likely change it before we travel again next month.

  4. Wild Orchid says

    My car will be due in about 2 months.

  5. Cynthia R says

    I just got it changed last month so probably will change it again in 4 to 5 months depending on how many miles i drive.

  6. Laura Smith says

    We drive a lot now that we only have one vehicle so I would guess that yes it is but Hubby keeps track

  7. Jamie Brigham says

    Yes my car is about 500 over right now, we have to wait until my husband gets paid again on Monday.

  8. Jamie Brigham says

    I am over by around 500 miles and will be getting it done this coming Monday. We just have to always wait until we have enough money to do it so this week I’l be staying home as much as possible.

  9. Sherrie C. says

    My car is due for an oil change really soon only a few more hundred miles to go.


  10. Sue Morris says

    My car is a small truck, and it is almost time for it’s next oil change. It is not driven often, so I rely on the date instead of the mileage.

  11. Nadene Adams says

    My husband just changed our oil on Thursday so we have a while to go before we need another one.

  12. Heidi Hile says

    My husband keeps track of our mileage, and takes care of all of our vehicle maintenance. I’m pretty sure the car is coming up on an oil change, though!

  13. Jen M. says

    My car should be due soon, the dealership didn’t give me a new sticker so I need to do some research lol

  14. Crystal F says

    It is time for an oil change. We are getting ready to drive it a long ways so it needs have a few things done to it. Thank you!

  15. angelia medlin says

    My car is due for an oil change in about a week, or about 150 miles (which ever comes first).

  16. Jen5253 Range says

    No, it was recently done, so I won’t have to get it done for at least another three or four months.
