your oil light can come on if there is too much preassure too! (dunno about 5.s but my mazda and pajero do)

my car only hits 80 degrees after a goo hours driving off boost. on boost it could be 5-10 min.

is there too much oil?

Right so my stat not opening might not be the solution :roll: i know ive not got to much pressure when idling because ive got an aftermarket mechanical gauge too.

i seem to have the same problem.
i've an electrial gauge and on idle it starts at 2 bar and over ten min it works up to just under 3 bar and when i drive for a bit it comes back down

I know it's not a fix, but my knackered old fiesta would flash it's low oil pressure light at me on idle.

I just turned the idle speed up, ignorance is bliss.  :lol:

Only i couldn't give a **** about the little 950cc engine, and it didn't have an expensive turbo bolted to it.

I once had a mk2 fiesta pop and the water temp never worked, needless to say about 3 months of driving it seized whilst driven down country lane even being towed at 30mph would un jam it :mrgreen:
