Hey.

I was wondering.
In my Old car (Opel/vouxall mokka)
My oil temp never did go above 90degrees(Celcius).

Now om just cruising 126km/h adaptieve cruise control on a long drive
And temp reached 103degrees in flat area . I understand this is no problem but im a little bit stressed if i leave on holiday to Austria (mountains) and the engine Will have to work hard to move 4adults and luggage.

See the pic (just seconds before hitting 103)

Greetings.

I've never looked at my oil temperature. I'll take a look next time I drive.

From googling around it appears that oil should get above 100, preferably in the 105-110 range and that 90 (from your other car) seems too low. The "above 100" figure is so that it would evaporate off any moisture and keep the oil in good condition. None of what I read was specifically about T-Roc, but about all VW/Seat/Skoda brands in general, and indeed most cars in general.

Went out into the big hills of northern England today, couldn't get the oil over 99 (this was after a long steep hill that I had to do in 2nd gear because I was behind a truck, the car would easily have managed 3rd or 4th). Usually it's at 92.

Yes, one of the "benefits" of the 3 cylinder is it makes less heat.
