    Oil temp

    We have recently brought a TDI 400 and I have noticed the analogue oil temp gauge sits around 90/95 but the digital dash read out is roughly 100-105. What sort of oil temp should a TDI 400 engine run at? And does everyone else have a difference between the analogue guage and digital?

    I'm aware of the EGR issues with some of the bi-turbo tdi's but ours doesn't seem to be using any oil yet.

    I believe the analog guage may be general engine/coolant temperature.

    Ahh yes, silly me. Does everyone else's sit at roughly those figures?

    I have a 340 & coolant is always on 90 once warmed up. Oil varies between 92 & 108, depending on hilliness & speed.
