Motor Oil Matters Review & *Giveaway* Ends 8/2

This site has affiliate links and sponsored content. Read my Disclosure Policy.
Last week I told you about Motor Oil Matters and their Checklist!  I am sick of worrying that I'm getting my car improperly serviced by being taken advantage of at local shops and garages.  So this time, I took the advice from  Motor Oil Matters (MOM) and used their checklist when I got my oil changed from a local shop!   



Here are some of the things I looked for, using the checklist!

1. Is it time for a change?
Yes!!  My car's sensor said it was!

2. Am I getting a full change?
Yep, I asked them to show me the old and the new filter... it's always important to get a NEW filter!    I also made sure they had it securely in place and that all caps under the hood of my car were on securely and tightly! I also asked them to show me the oil they used, and the obliged!

3.  Did I get a receipt?
Yes! It showed what was done, the supplies used, and the price.  I logged it into my Auto Maintenance Log Tracket that I keep in my glove box!


4. Do I know when my next oil change is?
Yep, I ensured that they put  a sticker on my car AND reset my digital oil gauge that tells me when it's time to go for a change!


What a smooth and easy process.  Never again will I have to stress about getting my oil changed in my Civic!


And now, it's time for the giveaway....one lucky reader (US RESIDENTS ONLY!) will win a $50 VISA Gift Card towards their next oil change!

  3. Did you get a receipt? is one of the questions

    I always get a receipt just in case. You always need proof.
