i'm looking for a recommendation for an oil change (& filter,
spark plugs, air filter change) place in north berkeley, albany,
or el cerrito. the website has one question asking for recs and

i'd like to know if anyone uses jiffy lube or another such
place, and if they're reliable.

It takes around 15 minutes total time and about $6.00 in supplies
initial purchases of wrench, drip pan, etc. Nori
