A class on how to not be scared of your car's guts, what they are, what they do, and how to do most basic maintenance on passenger cars and trucks. Most likely the class will revolve around the instructor or a student's car and go over things like oil changes, fluid checks, how to change burned out bulbs, replace batteries, jump start, and swap a spare tire. Class might also include more complex maintenance as time and student comfort allows.
