OIL TEMP ON RALLIARTS AND EVO X

Postby denzza » Sun Mar 29, 2015 8:51 pm

Hey guys,

Recently installed a oil temp gauge. And its reading 110c and when driving around 30 minutes. it goes to 120c.

I feel like this is way too high!


Does anyone have RA with a oil temp sensor ?


THinking i need an Oil cooler

Thanks guys

The X does have an engine oil cooler, the RA does not.

Just clarify, both the evo x and ralliart have an sst cooler. Only the evo x has an engine oil cooler, the ralliart doesn't.

To be honest I have no idea what my oil temps are. I don't think the RA even has an oil temp sensor?

I've tracked my car several times with about 250kw running through it and it hasn't missed a beat. I change my oil every 5000kms and it doesn't look completely stuffed and doesn't smell burnt so it mustn't be crazy hot.

There you have it! :-D

Your engine oil will be above 100 degrees, so is your coolant; as poe-sniper says, check the colour, check the smell...

Yeah see i do oil changes every 5,000kms as well. I have never had burning smell or anything. Healthy as it can be !

Im using TOTAL QUARTZ 9000 5W40.

But i think oil cooler should do the trick. Just stucks to find out 2 years later its been running hot !

Also my coolant doesnt go over 85 degrees

One of the things you should be doing before trackdays in the RA is add an oil cooler. It's cheap insurance from engine damage and will help keep coolant temps lower as well.
