This career fits someone with previous experience doing basic auto work and a basic understanding of vehicle systems. While lube techs tend to earn less than other auto mechanics, this role can give you the experience and training opportunities to eventually work as a full-service auto technician or mechanic. An automotive lube tech's job description includes doing basic car maintenance work and small repairs. Rather than handling complex issues, a lube tech performs oil and filter changes, checks that tires are inflated correctly, replenishes vehicle fluids and lubricates joints and fittings as needed. Other lube tech duties can include cleaning a vehicle's interior, replacing wiper blades, installing car batteries and performing tire rotations.
This work requires good dexterity to use tools and requires a lot of standing and bending to work on vehicles. The garage environment presents risks that can lead to cuts, strains and other injuries, so an attention to detail and a focus on safety are crucial for lube techs.
