    Was doing a quick check of the engine bay today and when I opened the oil cap smoke started coming out. Is this normal?

    90 degrees hitting air temps below 10 degrees celsius, what happens when you breath out on a cold day….?

    Yeh the oil does get quite hot but it just seemed odd. Im pretty sure it never used to happen or maybe its just me worrying to much.

    When you put it that way it does kind of make sense.
