Oil Changes - No garage

Burnblaze

Does any one know any places that are good for doing oil changes on a car when one doesn't have garage access? I live in the Silicon Valley, and I don't have a garage. My HOA sent me a warning for doing an oil change once.

Are there any workarounds? Any places where I can be unbothered for an hour to do it myself?

Yeah, some nosy guy kept asking me what I was up to? Several other people were curious but overall approving. It just takes one person to ruin all the fun...

If I buy one quart and bring the other 8 from home (left over from past changes), you think that will fly?

I have my own jack/stands/pan

just keep your garage door closed when doing an oil change

letting someone else tell you what you can and cannot do with your car on your property.

HOAs were created to keep niggers of all colors out of your neighborhood. Although there is no fucking way I would live around other people so I agree with you.

I've done quick jobs in little spots off the side of the road or in parking garages after hours.

But vatzone parking lot or some other such parking lot where that's not frowned upon might be better. As mentioned, walmarts tend to attract a certain caliber of people who seem to think that sort of thing is just dandy.

The appropriate answer here is to move out and make sure to sell your home to some Somalis on section 8. Fuck HOAs. That or kill the autist who reported you.

Why would an hoa be angry about an oil change? It doesn't even make any noise

Dude HOAs get pissed off about the most ridiculous things like if the kind of trim around your front door doesn't match community standards or if you put flowers more than 3" from a shrub without written approval first.

Yeah me neither. I'd rather just ask my neighbor if he wouldn't mind raking the lawn more because it blows in to mine or getting a call because I'm making too much noise on a weeknight. Whatever. It usually doesn't take much to get along if your neighborhood isn't full of horrible people in the first place.

my city ordinances are designed like this too, which sucks a bunch, the writers left it open to interpretation so you can bitch about your neighbor over petty things

put your car on jackstands turns it immediately into a "derelict vehicle" regardless of its status

tfw where you live sucks a ton

be glorious Freedomburger mixed from two adjacent white European countries
live in pleasant neighborhood in an old stone house
such low crime leave stuff outside and sometimes door unlocked
gun under bed if a nigger should come in while I'm sleeping with the door unlocked
keep my yard nice because I'm not a nigger, but nobody cares if it gets shaggy sometimes
sometimes do semi-major car work in the street but nobody cares because I'm not "that guy" doing loud messy car work in the street all the time

Just have to find the right neighborhood.

Maybe 10% of the total housing market is "protected" under an hoa, you probably have something similar in your country

In my old neighbor hood all the houses were brown and a darkish red and we painted our house robin egg blue just to fuck with them. We ended up selling it

how fucking long does it take?

drive around to warm up oil
drive up on ramps
15 minutes to drain the oil and change the filter
5 minutes to refill oil and drive off ramps

do it anyway.
