EOT!!

Ok guys. I have a thread on here explaining the problem I am having with my oil temps. Anyway, today on my way home my oil temp got up 232 degrees! Should I be driving this thing until I get my oil cooler replaced?

Thanks guys. I really don't have the money to blow this thing up.

I was just reading about oil temps.

Normal=200-220

Severe=220-235

Alarm=235+

Food for thought.

Personally I would park it until you can change the cooler. That is what I had to do to mine and my temps never got to the extreme that you are seeing. I just didn't see the point of pushing it to where something bigger happened.

Rebuild the oil cooler before you have some serious damage to worry about.

It's definitely time to stop driving it, until repairs are made.

That's a pretty big difference, but I'm certain that your turbo and engine would create temperature spikes MUCH higher than that as oil flows through them. At any rate, it certainly indicates a low rate of coolant flow through your oil cooler. I just hope you haven't cracked your EGR cooler due to the low flow.
