156 2.0 TS Oil/Temp query
I flushed the engine and changed the oil and filter on my 156 2.0 TS yesterday as it had an engine rebuild 10k miles ago, and has been running on the same oil since then. I only got the car last weekend and felt I should change the oil asap.
It was running, according to the PO, fully synthetic oil. Not sure of the weight. It did seem to run rather on the cool side though, with the temp settling on around 72/73 degrees and rising to around 88/90 when in traffic etc.
To cut a long story short, since the flush and oil change, it seems to be running slightly hotter now, settling around 88 and creeping up to 93 ish in traffic etc.
I can't understand why! I am using 10w 40 semi synthetic oil.
