hi all

past couple of day I notice the oil temp is on the lower side,
during normal city driving temp was only at 72c. which usually should
be around 85plus ? it stayed at the same level when gearbox temp at
87 plus n water temp at 90. oil pressure seems normal n plus in the
assessport to varify ecu reading was same as the digital gauge.
can't be normal? pls advice btw. no error code or warning lights.
thanks
winsome

Hi

This sounds normal to me....Having played with all the displays I now just have the same 6 things displayed all the time....for me on motorways doing a steady 85-90mph the oil temp is usually between 75-78 - I did notice in the colder weather we've been having recently it sits a bit lower - I've seen it on 72 for mile after mile. Coolant temp is typically 76-85. If I'm stuck in traffic for a long time oil temp creeps up to...90- 95ish

thx
however even if I m stuck in traffics temp will go up to 75 but
it use to heat up pretty quickly to near 90?
may be something wrong with sensor? if not what could cause
such problem? if the themostat then water will be low but at the
moment it heat up to 94 in no time.....

have you changed the oil recently and if so, what oil did you use?

define standard oil... do you have the exact make? is it the GT-R oil or another brand? and what is the viscosity?

my experience having lived in hk for 12 years is that oil temps in summer are DRAMATICALLY higher than winter. the 90+ you used to see very quickly, what sort of ambient air temp was that?

I think I was being a little over sensitive as I checked a couple gtr n confirmed temp was normal. it's has to do with the outside temp n realize at the same time the gtr has more than sufficient cooling, since on track I experienced gearbox temp at120 while engine at 100
so turns everything is fine.

Seems normal to me. Thats the kind of temps that I am getting.

One thing I have notice though is that the ambient temp on the display never goes below 0c. even when it's below freezing. Is this the lowest it will read?
