*There’s dye for air conditioners but there ain’t no such thing for motors”, they say. The NAPA store here is great as is one of the O’Reilly stores but the other O’Reilly store is a ship of fools. NAPA, Car Quest, Big A, All Pro/Bumper to Bumper all tend to use good name brand parts.

Are there any bad parts at Carquest or Napa?
