Oil and coolant temperature f25

Which is normal oil and coolant temperature for 2.0 motor n47? 2 hours drive on outside temperature about 0C oil temperature is in range 75 to 90 C, and 75-85 coolant temperature. Is that normal or need to be higher ? Some people say it should be fixed on 100C oil temperature, is that true?

Temperatures are low. Coolant thermostat is rated at 88C opening temperature, so ECT should be above that figure. Oil typically around 100C.

Only thing to keep in mind, very low load engine loads at freezing temperatures may not acheive optimum engine temperatures. Have you any figures for slightly higher ambient temperatures?

Previously I did not pay attention to the temperature until it was -13 outside, the oil temperature did not exceed 75c, although the car was on the open road with 2000rpm

Has your model any grille shutters?
