Yesterday, we talked about ways to save money on a road trip. Road trips can be a ton of fun for the family and a great way to make memories together.

One of the most important things to do before a long trip is to make sure you’ve got adequate oil in the car. I know this because we blew out an engine one summer because it was low on oil. A new engine cost over $1400 at the time.

Huge bummer in the summer.

I was recently contacted by Motor Oil Matters, or MOM, a new consumer education and industry watchdog program by the American Petroleum Institute. They sent me a gift card for our next oil change.

MOM has been established to educate folks about the benefits of quality licensed motor oils and to call on to the carpet those who engage in tricky deals. It seems that not all great deals for oil changes are great deals for your car.

But what do you ask the guy who’s going to change the oil? Consult this checklist from MOM to help you navigate the waters of oil changes and the right quality oil for your car.

Want timely reminders about motor oil and other helpful tips to keep your car running well? You can follow MOM on facebook and on twitter.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
