an oil cooler?
Maybe it is time for a little research.
What is the optimum oil temperature?
What is the optimum coolant temperatute?
The Syncro already has an oil cooler inbuilt. They knew then that oil
temperature (too high) was an issue, otherwise they would not have
fitted the cooler. Make sense?
If you look at the little table in the manual (page 7 appendices,
Vehicle Care) there seems to be a maximum climate operating
temperature of 40 degrees C.
Also the manual defines the cutin and cutout temperature of the
Stage 1: Cut in 89-94. Cut out 81. (degrees C)
Stage 2: Cut in 95-100. Cut out 87.
I have always thought that when stage 2 cuts in, the engine is too
HOT and should be allowed to cool. If you keep going after stage 2
then you risk overheating to destruction.
So what should I (we) do?
