Treat it Right & It Will Treat You Right..$35 Jiffy Lube GC Giveaway

Do you take care of one of your most used and most relied upon investments- Your Vehicle?

Do you know when it's time for an oil change?
Do you know what type of oil to use?
Do you know when to get new tires?
Do you know what tread is right for the area that you live in?

-According to a recent survey from the Automotive Service Association, more than 54 percent of customers who take their vehicles for service and repair are women.

I think that it is wonderful that women are being more proactive about their vehicles, but I also think there is a lot more that we can do in the care and maintence of our vehicles.

I could go on and on about all of the things that I need to know about my car, but will spare you the agony and share some helpful info that I got at MotorOilMatters.org

Does it matter if I change my oil regularly?
•Regular oil changes are one of the most important things that can be done to help extend the life of an engine.

•Changing your oil will remove harmful contaminants and dirt that have been collected in the oil.

What does the "W" stand for in motor oil names?

•It stands for winter, not weight as many people believe.

Can I switch between conventional oil and synthetic oil?

•Switching between synthetic and conventional oil will not cause any harm to engines as long as both individual oils meet the engine manufacturer’s requirements as listed in the owner’s manual.

Motor Oil Matters- Is a web site designed to provide you with the information that you need to make an informed decision when it comes to motor oil and your vehicle. You can test your knowledge with their interactive quiz or visit their tips & advice section for answers to commonly asked questions. You can also find a Certified Motor Oil Matters store on the Motor Oil Matters website.

I recently went to Jiffy Lube for an oil change with a lot more knowledge than I had before. It made me feel really good when the technician at Jiffy Lube talked to me about tire pressure, fluids, and oil-and I knew what he was talking about!

I know one thing is for sure, if you don't take care of your car, it's not going to take care of you!

With summer upon us, I want to make sure that you are going to be safe while on vacation with your family! One lucky Ma21cuteboy reader is going to win a $35 Jiffy Lube Gift Card!

I went to play the game but it gave me a message saying they aren't accepting new requests... confusing. :(

I got 60 points. Not too shabby. Maybe I should consider a career move....

Erica C. May 26, 2010 at 6:16 PM  

I got one wrong! Also, I like how you can answer a few questions and find out which oil is right for your specific car.

singermagic1 May 26, 2010 at 9:48 PM  

I had taken it before and this time I managed to get 100 %
