Yep - the V6 comes OEM equipped with an "overdrive" fifth gear! Not so the 4.3 4-cyl. with its 4 gear trans and the 4th gear isn't an overdrive gear, as I recall.

Presumably the query is about the ignition switch - have never used any sort of lubricant in an ignition switch in about 60 years of driving, and have never had a problem with an ignition switch.
