Does your car leak? Does it leave spots in your parking space? An oil leak is not only bad for your car, it pollutes our local waterways. Each year, our vehicles release 7 million quarts of motor oil and other petroleum-related products into the Puget Sound watershed.
Join the experts from fixcarleaks.org for a FREE auto leaks workshop at a location near you. Don’t Drip and Drive offers free auto leaks inspection workshops to help you learn about your car and make sound choices for Puget Sound. Certified automotive instructors teach these free workshops at fully equipped auto-repair training centers at participating community colleges and high schools.
The workshops are open to EVERYONE in Puget Sound region. You also get a professional inspection of your car — for free (we like that a lot). In a few hours, the workshop takes you through the basics of vehicle maintenance. You’ll learn basic car care – like checking your oil and fluids – that can help you catch problems (such as leaks) before they become big and expensive — that scares us more than anything!
