Saginaw Texas Autozone: A word of Warning

Oh how I love thee...


Idiot Parts Teenager: Welcome to Autozone, How may I help you?
Me: It's cool, I need a filter.. I can get it.
IPT: No no, let me get it.. don't want you to get the wrong one!
Me: (ignores, walks back to the filters and grabs a motorcraft off the shelf)
IPT: (comes in behind me) Now that's for a big diesel, are you sure that's what you need?
Me: I'm pretty sure. (walk to the counter, IPT follows)
IPT: I see that you're on a bike, did you just upgrade to the diesel?
Me: Something like that.
IPT: Let me get you some fuel injector cleaner. I'm pretty sure you need some. All Ford's get dirty injectors.
Me:
IPT: They build up gunk around the injectors. They don't move as well as the Dodge and Chevy's.
Me: What the Christ are you talking about?
IPT: Yep. And it boosts your octane level.
Me: (pays for the filter) You don't even know how to spell diesel much less powerstroke. If you have "dirty" injectors in your powerstroke, you have issues that nothing in this store will help you with. And I don't have time to explain Cetane to you. (leaves the store)


Just my tale of woe for the day. I now have a headache.

I only go there for the oil filter for the truck. But, now that will change. All of my cleaning supply needs and whatnots I buy at Walmart. Even the Rotella is cheaper there.

So you used to be the IPT once...years ago...


I give the kid credit for knowing the filter you grabbed was for a diesel without having to look in a book.

No, I started when I was 3. My dad would make me bring him tools. Then it moved on to reading as many books as I could find on whatever I was working on.
