How to Change Your Oil: & Jiffy Lube Giveaway

M.O.M = Motor Oil Matters
Congrats Shelly Cox Did you know the type of motor oil you put in your car matters?  Well, it does. If you want to make your car last you have to change the oil.  If you aren't using the right oil for your vehicle it can be particularly harmful. can help you determine the right oil for your car. Personally, I used to buy the cheapest oil I could find; but after my engine blew (7 times in 1 year!) I finally wised up and did some research.  Last month I bought a new car and now I am diligent about oil maintenance. 

In a perfect world my husband would do vehicle maintenance, but I don't live in a perfect world.  That, however, is another post.  I was given the opportunity to bring my car to Jiffy Lube recently for an oil change and it was quick, painless, and relatively inexpensive.  (To find a Jiffy Lube near you check out the Jiffy Lube Locator.)The guys there were very nice and didn't try to up-sell me a lot of unnecessary maintenance.  I did some research before going on the site and knew exactly the right questions to ask.  Think about it, a vehicle is one of the most expensive investments we make.  Shouldn't we be informed about how to take care of it?

On there are fun games and great video, as well as answers to tons of information on the right oil for you car and the importance of good oil. You can also check out for more motor vehicle guidance for women.
