OK, I feel better now. Bosch should be a good battery. As long as the venting system is intact you should be OK with the flooded battery.

I spoke to the mechanic who installed the battery (I had to get a state inspection).

I was completely wrong: The battery he installed is a flooded cell and does have a vent. He said that the Bosch batteries have a vent but, for example, Delcos do not.

I learned a lot from your post: Thank you!

Yes--he said the vent is fine and there were no issues.

If he has the vent tube in place you are good. This is the OEM configuration.
