I thought for a while that the world has passed me by, is now confirmed for sure!Me too, Phil, I recently spent 45 minutes looking for the transmission dipstick on my new pickup, there isn't one.
I asked the largest dealer of Yanmars on the west coast and was told there are none. The heat exchanger internals are cupronickel rather than the copper of most others so don't require an anode.My 3GM30F (and I believe the 2GM also) has a Cu-Ni heat exchanger and has no zinc anode.
When I got my BMW X1 six years ago I popped the hood and looked around. After struggling for 10 minutes and not finding the engine oil dipstick, I opened the manual. Turns out there is none!! Only a sensor and a screen display buried in a menu. And an alarm. I guess they figure BMW owners are incapable of even simple maintenance. But overall a really dumb idea.Me too, Phil, I recently spent 45 minutes looking for the transmission dipstick on my new pickup, there isn't one.
