no, you actually are proving my point. Yes, the oil sucks heat out of the engine itself, but there is no cooling measures for the oil itself. it just cycles through the engine and keeps absorbing heat until it reaches an equilibrium.

as quoted from that link
Quote:
As a coolant, oil carries off about 40% of the heat that's generated by the operating engine. Once the engine is fully warmed up, the circulating oil can encounter temperatures of 300F or higher in severe service.
So oil can see temps upward of 300*, which i think we can all agree, is higher than the 180-215 that the coolant will see.

Re: 180 degree thermostat rethink

There is a reason that the SRT4s come with an oil cooler. Because cooling the oil works

Re: 180 degree thermostat rethink

lets not forget ,
there's another reason cars aren't built with 160 or 180 t stats

winter

people usually like to get heat out of the heater - as much as possiable as fast as possiable
a colder stat or no stat at all will slow things right down when your trying to get warm

Re: 180 degree thermostat rethink

I run a 180 deg t-stat in my 94' 6g72 Lebaron with no issues whatsoever. The car is daily driven almost everyday.

Re: 180 degree thermostat rethink

oil coolers are great, however if the oil comes off of the pump and back into the oil pan then non of the oil that passes though it is lubricating the engine,if you have an upgraded oil pump this is not as big of a deal. or if you have a turbo (like the srt4) then the oil has to be piped back into the pan so no biggy.

and obviously if there is oil lines running somewhere it is super simple to just put an oil cooler in the line somewhere,
