My Ford Expedition warns me when I need an oil change. It gives me early warnings, then it tells me when I MUST change the oil. I admit that I like that feature very much!
Recently, I learned about a site called "Motor Oil Matters" that includes a ton of great information. I admit, Bo takes care of a lot of our car issues, but I am not helpless. I liked the fact that the site includes an informative checklist -- which was useful last week when I had my oil changed in my truck.
One of the things I never thought about was the viscosity of the oil! For the first time ever, in response to reading through the checklist, I looked into the owner's manual to find out what was recommended. This time when I went to have the oil changed, I knew more about what to ask. In the past, I just hoped they would take care of me. Thanks to the information on the site, I knew I could take care of myself!
I felt more empowered and prepared when I took my Expedition in for an oil change. You can, too, if you visit Motor Oil Matters!
