I will check the coolant temps tonight, as the outside temp will be about the same.

Hmm.....some cars cruising oil temps running 10-15 degrees cooler than others.
Our outside temp has not gone above 70F.
Thanks guys

Outside temp last night was 87F-89F.

Coolant temps:
Stop and Go: 195F - 205F (AC Off)
Cruising 70-80mph: 180F - 185F Mostly steady at 180F (AC On)

All my temps were measured using the DIC.

Oil Temperature Question

Hi Guys,

It is cold out but I noticed that my oil temp won't go above 84C (183.2 F) It actually bounces between 84C and 83C (183.2 F and 181.40 F) Is this normal? It is not falling in between the yellow lines as it is supposed to.

2SSRS L99 coolant 198 and oil temp about 210 while cruising. I never go WOT with oil temp below 200. Personal preference but I have 93K miles so far, and it works.
