Impromptu Do-Your-Own-Oil-Change Workshop


Hey all, Join us for 2 (two!) donate-what-you-want learn-how-to-do-your-own-oil-change workshops. Both at NOON, on Saturday Oct. 20th, and Oct. 27th, [Jared] will be changing the oil in a 2012 Prius on the 20th, and a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan on the 27th.

This short series of “workshops” will be as hands-on as you would like it to be (i.e., if you just want to watch, that’s fine, or if you want to lay on the ground up under the car and get your hands dirty that’s fine too.) and will have all of the necessary supplies provided. You will leave this event with knowledge about how to perform a simple oil change in a car.

What to bring – Clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty, closed toed shoes.
You do not need to be a member of LVL1 to attend this workshop. In fact, visitors are encouraged! If it is your first visit to our space, you will need to sign our waiver of liability. (This is standard procedure for all LVL1 activities.)

N.B. A big shout-out to [William] who ran this workshop earlier this year and taught me how to perform an oil change.
