Oil temp and cooling


Recommended Posts

Under normal driving conditions my temperature gauge sits at just above the first marker. Getting back today I thought I would check the oil lines to the front oil cooler and they were cold. Wondering if the thermostat to the front cooler is working so at what temperature should this kick in?

They won't get hot unless you leave it running for about 15/20 minutes after a run.

Takes a lot to get the thermostat open. Mine rarely goes much above the quarter mark, I don't think I've seen it above half half more than a couple of times and that's stuck in traffic on a hot day.
