As a mom myself with two young children, I can attest to the fact that “moms do it all.” Laundry, cooking, house work, grocery shopping, doctor’s appointments, kids’ activities, and around the town errands, it’s tough to keep up with everything. In fact, my mom is visiting and even she has noticed all the running around.
So, it’s such a relief to know that I can get our vehicle’s oil changed at Walmart while shopping for our household needs. Our van lets our family get around town, but it’s also an important way for us to see family members who live far away. At least once a year we travel over 1500 miles across country to see my mom.
Get your Vehicle Ready for Winter
Cooler weather is moving in and keeping our vehicle’s engine running smoothly is so important. It’s the thousands of miles of stop-and-go traffic, idling, and cold temperatures that put our family van to the test. But with Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ Motor Oil my family enjoys the peace of mind that comes with knowing that our van is protected from ever breaking down. Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ delivers twice the wear protection of the industry standard for oil wear and tear throughout its life. Phew – that’s good news for a mom like me.
Car Care – A Latina Heritage
My mom knows a thing or two about car care. She learned a few lessons as a single Latina mom from Puerto Rico while I was growing up. And it’s been through her help and guidance that I’ve learned the basics of car care.
Getting our vehicle’s oil changed was high on our list this week, but so are things like washer fluid and antifreeze. Thankfully, Walmart’s “Do it for me” services takes care of everything and all our care care maintenance needs were fulfilled while we shopped.
Car Maintenance Check List
Thanks to my mom, here are 10 Tips to Keep your Car Running Right. This FREE printable checklist will help you keep your auto maintenance on track. Every car, truck, or van is different, so you’ll want to check your owner’s manual for specifics. You can get everything done at Walmart and you don’t even need an appointment. Just drop your vehicle off at the auto center, get your weekly shopping done inside, and Walmart will handle your oil change or other auto maintenance needs.
