Usually I'm runnin 200 degrees on the oil and 194 with the coolant. Today I jumped to 225 with the oil and 215 with the coolant.


All outside conditions have been consistant. What's the deal, I'm driving the same way each time?

What are your temps?

If you sit in traffic or stop for any period of time your coolant will go to 225, that is when the fans are turning on, and if your coolant goes to 225 you oil temp will not be too far behind. I have a 178 degree stat with the Powerloader (that turns the fans on at a lower temp) and on a 90 plus degree day my car sitting in traffic for an hour will not go above 205 degrees and my oil temp will run about 200-215. You can also get a Vinci fan controller that will turn the fans on when you want, it's adjustable.

68, if your going to order a Powerloader for your car that will also turn the fans on sooner, just wanted you to know.

Cool, pun intended.


What do they cost and can I do the install? I'm pretty handy, just don't tell the wife.

Thanks.
