Description of Activity:

Today i will be demonstrating the task of doing an oil change for a car. It's a simple process that requires few tools and some knowledge. It is important that every step is followed as if we forget a certain step we could possible make an oil leak in which the customer will see that their car is leaking oil which is bad for the engine if not dealt with before all the oil leaks out. In addition, we have to do our oil changes relatively quickly or else we will be backed up with too many cars and customers will be upset that it is taking too long.


I have chosen this task because it is vital to do frequent oil changes on your car as they are supposedly the most important thing you can do to maintain and prolong the life of your engine. Fresh, clean oil lubricates the engine's internal components, it keeps them cool by lowering the friction and carrying heat away. It also keeps any grit or tiny particles from scratching tightly fitted parts. Replacing old oil with new oil can reduce repairs and improve performance and makes you car drive smooth when you're engine is not properly lubricated.
