Buying Auto Parts: Verify Your Purchases

The automotive parts buying experience can be akin to having a route canal. You need it, but you know it could very well be painful.
As if servicing a Chrysler 2.7L is not already nightmarish enough, today I get to return to a local parts store yet again. Technically, the required part - the often problematic oil pressure sensor - was purchased yesterday, but naturally I was sold the wrong part version.
I clearly told the rep that part was needed for a Sebring with a 2.7L engine. The 2.7L engine was available in both the convertible and sedan for the 2001 model. I receive the box, pay for the part, and head back home. Now, it appears that I was sent on my way with an oil pressure sensor for the coupe, which does not even come factory with a Chrysler engine! Taking a closer look at the electrical connector, I suspect the part is instead for a Mitsubishi 3.0L engine.
