It reminds me of the automatic transmissions that required no servicing.
From my owners book. Also my car and our malibu don't have a dip stick for the tranny.
Automatic Transaxle Fluid
It is not necessary to check the transaxle fluid level. A
transaxle fluid leak is the only reason for fluid loss. If a
leak occurs, take the vehicle to the dealership service
department and have it repaired as soon as possible. You
may also have your fluid level checked by your dealer
or service center when you have your oil changed.
Change both the fluid and filter every 50,000 miles
(83 000 km) if the vehicle is mainly driven under one or
more of these conditions:
In heavy city traffic where the outside temperature
regularly reaches 90F (32C) or higher.
In hilly or mountainous terrain.
When doing frequent trailer towing.
Uses such as found in taxi, police or delivery service.
If you do not use your vehicle under any of these
conditions, the fluid and filter do not require changing. [/b][/quote]
That's the most assinine thing I've EVER heard!!!!!! I flush my fluid & change my filter every 30k.mi. no matter what!!! They'll be eating Trannies all over the place if they follow that "advice". Un-f**kin' real!!! Good luck rocket scientists!!!
Anyhow, back on topic... I've been running BOSCH Plat +4s in my 98'SE Vulcan
for about 2 years or so now, & I've put alot of miles on em' ... NO PROBLEMS!!!!
W/out a Dyno. test theres no way to know if they give more power, but they do seem to give quicker starts, & better fuel mileage than the stock plugs.
