Basic Auto Care Workshop
$15 members/$20 regular
In this workshop we will discuss basics of the combustion engine and how the systems of a car work together, tools, manuals, maintenance schedules, and how to find a good mechanic. There will be opportunities for questions and participant dialogue throughout. Projected images and actual parts and tools will be used for reference.
For the hands-on part of the workshop, we will locate and learn to use the jack included with participant’s cars to remove a wheel and replace it with the spare. We will talk about checking vital fluids, changing an air filter, and the process and materials needed for an oil change as well.
