The people from MOM – Motor Oil Matters – sent me the following information, to share with my readers…on how you can ensure that you are getting the most from your oil change. I’m most happy to oblige.


  • 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.
  • Motor Oil Matters, or MOM, a new consumer education and industry watchdog program by the American Petroleum Institute, has been established to stress the benefits of quality licensed motor oils and call on to the carpet those who engage in deceptive practices.
  • 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.

In addition to the information above they send this fantastic checklist for you to go over…and hopefully take with you, the next time you take your car in for an oil change.

  1. I learned that oil viscosity is very important to know. I need to know the right oil that the manufacturer recommends for my car. This is so important!

  2. I learned that it’s important to know exactly what oil they’re using for the change. I didn’t know that bulk oil was being used….I will be more diligent about that in the future for sure.

  3. I learned that you need to Pay close attention to how you use your vehicle because vehicle manufacturers sometimes recommend oil drain intervals based on driving habits
    or conditions.

  4. “Do you know what you’re getting?” Uh, usually not. I drop it off and hope for the best which is a terrible idea. 😛

  5. I learned to make sure the oil change includes a fresh filter. Owner’s manual probably recommends a specific type of oil filter, so make sure the right one is included with the oil change.

  6. Write down the mileage and date you had your oil changed. Vehicle
    manufacturers often recommend oil changes based on miles or time,
    whichever comes first.
    Thank you.

  7. The most important piece of info I got was look for API-licensed oil and for API symbols like the ‘Donut’ (meets API engine oil standards) and API Certification Mark ‘Starburst’ (meets (ILSAC) standard) when buying oil or getting an oil change.
