Compass Engine Temperature
Where does you temp needle sit normally. I am at about 10 o'clock where it stops normally (177 F based on Scan gauge connect to the computer). I drove at about 80-95km/hr and worked up to 11 o'clock position. I only had this for a day. Just picked this up from a dealer so this is super new to me but looks too low in my opinion.
I don't agreed with the manual though on oil. I've read a number of thread on early changes and real dirty oi. But 5w20 at any temperature. This is not synthetic and at hot summer temp, load of A/C and cargo etc seems too thin. The manual is missing the typical chart from oil grade at various temp application ranges. The service intervals only system the oil must be changed by 10,000km. What, I be looking at maybe a third shortly after that.
