$50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway


Many of us live a fast paced life. I know I do. We only pay attention to when the sticker says we need our oil changed. Do you know what kind of oil the mechanic is using when it’s changed? This is where MOM (Motor Oil Matters) can help educate you to make sure you are getting the services you pay for. MOM is a NEW consumer education and industry watchdog program by the American Petroleum Institute to stress the benefits of quality motor oil and call out on the people who engage in deceptive practices. A little education goes a long way and also helps to empower you as a consumer when you are at the mechanic’s shop. Isn’t nice to know that someone is watching out for us consumers.

If you are planning a summer trip then you really need to make sure you are receiving quality motor oil in your car to prevent road trip problems. The last thing you want is to have a breakdown out of town. It’s stressful and costly! Also check out those quick Service-locators to ensure they are pouring quality motor oil into your car before you decide on a cheaper deal. Sometimes those quick change places can cost you more in the long run. My husband checks and makes sure everything is up to date but I know everyone doesn’t have that luxury.

For more information you can visit the MOM website and here is a great checklist you can take with you on your next visit!

  1. Geoff K says

    Luckily my car keeps track of it for me — it has a gauge on the control panel that reports the oil life. 🙂

  2. Tamar says

    Yes, because last year delaying our oil change by like 2 months caused us to need a new engine. And yes, it was a brand new car.

  3. Deb C says

    The place that changes it always puts a sticker on my windshield to remind me but I don’t always get it changed soon enough.

  4. Angela Kinder says

    Oh yes, we keep track of it. One time, my Dad didn’t keep track of it, and it caused the engine to seize up. We learned our lesson!

  5. Mary Beth Elderton says

    Yes! I have a light on the car that reminds me,but we also change the oil before or after long trips as well.

  6. Starr Greenwell says

    I get it done at the dealership and they put a small sticker on my inside windshield that reminds me.

  7. jules m. says

    i keep the sticker up there and change it when its time. i’ve been pretty faithful about it since i bought my honda, and its given me no problems at all in 10 yrs.

  8. Linda Bradshaw says

    I no longer own a vehicle. The motor went out on my van back in February and I can’t get anything else until next year.

  9. Suzanne Lewis says

    My car alerts me. I hate having the maintenance message flashing at me, so I change my oil whenever it tells me to.

  10. Lisa Jones says

    I do!
    To make it easy to remember I put a reminder in my phone after each is done for about a week before ita time again.. saves me the pain of trying to remember exactly when the last time was c=

  11. kim says

    absolutely when I get my oil changed they put the little sticker in my window and I pay attention to that and get the oil changed pretty close to the amount of miles it says

  12. susan smoaks says

    yes i use the trip meter on the car to keep track of how many miles i have been between oil changes

  13. tamara serrao says

    I am a stickler on making sure we keep the oil changed!! When I was a teenager, my car blew the engine from me not taking care of it with oil changes and tune ups 🙁

  14. alyce poalillo says

    I no longer have a car but I used to have a sticker inside the windshield reminding me when to change it

  15. Claire McKeon says

    Yes, I have a sticker in my car. I don’t always go when I am supposed to, but I get there eventually.

  16. Stacy Giacosa-Bauer says

    Yes, I do!!! They put a sticker on my window to tell me what mileage to change it!! Thanks for the chance to win!!!
