I'm an ASE certified mechanic as well as ASE certified in parts sales.  Having worked for O"Reilly (and Buick and Honda and Checker and more stores than I can recall over the decades) and currently, happily  working for CarQuest Auto Parts, I have to agree with the "don't trust anyone under 30" concept.  There are great counterpersons and pathetic counterpersons at any store.  The way a corporation treats their employees has a direct relationship on said employee's efforts.  (Did you hear that, O'Reilly's?)  I really like my job particularly because I know I'm helping people who actually need my expertise.  Asking me for Cummins spark plugs, Halogen fluid and '71 Beetle radiators really ticks me off.  I hope that post was a joke. Essentially it comes down to MODEL, MAKE AND YEAR which many people (even shop managers!) surprisingly don't even know and expect me to be psychic.  :amc:
Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean everyone's  NOT out to get you! :amc:
