Thread: 68S oil temp&press.

    68S oil temp&press.

    What should be the correct oil temp in normal driving conditions, 80 to 95 F ambient. My car seems to run about 100 C. How hot is too hot on a 2.0L engine?
    At 80C my oil pressure runs about 1 druck for every 1000 rpm, but at 100 C and 6000rpm my oil pressure is 4.5 druck. Anything to worry about? This my first Porche just being cautious.

    Your oil pressure sounds perfect, 1 bar per 1000 rpm, or 4 bar (60 psi at 4000 rpm). The oil temp can run up to and over 100C without problems, but I would suggest that if you are running in those high ambients a lot that you consider fitting a front oil coller
