This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in tool care.

After vehicles are used, every so often they need to get serviced to continue running.

Here is a video on servicing a car.

From the video description:
"The Experts demonstrates .com shows you how to service your car yourself. The car we used for this demo is a 2005 VW Golf with the 2 litre."

Here is a video on servicing a tractor.

From the video description:
"With the new year upon us, Irish Farmers Journal machinery correspondent Darren Bailey takes a look at how to service your tractor to keep it running smoothly into 2017."

To get certified for this BB, post Before and After pictures of the following being done on a vehicle or tractor:

 - oil change
 - adjust tire pressure
 - vacuum/clean engine air filter
 - vacuum/clean cab air filter
 - test that all signal bulbs, headlights and tail-lights are working
 - top off brake fluid
 - top off transmission fluid
 - top off coolant
 - top off windshield washer fluid
 - lube joints
 - Top off hydraulic fluid (tractor)
 - basic, quick cleaning
