Hi All, Been lurking for a long time, using search for all that i needed to know, including timing belt (et al)service. This site is awesome, adamss24 the things you contribute are amazing. Anyway, im having some trouble getting a definitive answer on engine oil temp. I'm in Australia, although it is cold here in Sydney at the moment. I use my 2002 Allroad 2.5tdi (AKE) mainly to tow my 1400kg caravan (i have a VW Polo 1.6 TDI as a daily). My oil temp when not towing is around 90-98 degress celsius (I have a FIS control FIS-Control great bit of gear that) that tells me my temps through the DIS/FIS (the little red screen in the cluster). When towing the oil temp usually sits around 104 degrees on the flat at 90KM/H (55 ish MPH) with the van on, however it can raise to up to 120 on steep consistent inclines. Is this too high? My trans temp is pretty good, around 80 mostly with torque converter locked. My coolant temp is good, 90-100. I have a remap from Speer chip tuning in Germany on the ECU. This car must be one of the best tow cars going. Thanks to all who contribute to this site, great stuff. I hope i get to give back something one day too!
