    Hi All,

    Just noticed there may be a problem with my oil temperature. At warm idle the oil temp is usually around the 80 mark but as soon as i go down a motorway with my foot to the floor it shoots up to between 85-90. Once it idles again for a few mins it drops back down. This could be normal but i've never noticed it before. Any advice much appreciated.

    Sounds pretty normal bud, as the pressure increases it creates more friction in the oil/components passing through hence the raise in temperature :)

    That's a very minimal increase TBH, you'd be surprised how hot things can get on track.

    Doesn't sound like too much to worry about, running the engine at higher RPM's will generate extra heat. Especially with a turbo on the go.
