Title: temperature checking - i30 gd diesel
Post by: chris_i30gd on September 09, 2017, 14:37:52
I recently changed oil in my i30 diesel 1.4 crdi 2013 model and I added  liqui moly ceramic  additive.
This one:  :link: Liqui Moly Ceratec Engine Oil Additive Ceramic Wear Protection 3721 5 pack | eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Liqui-Moly-Ceratec-Engine-Oil-Additive-Ceramic-Wear-Protection-3721-5-pack-/171639723408)


After 500km of use and a short 200km trip that  I have done today
the  temperature was  1 line under 90C degrees and has 5 lines in gauge when I arrived.

I forgot If I had 5 or 6 lines temperature before. Can you inform me your temp gauge info :)

Thanks!

Oil temp should be about the same as engine temp - 90 deg C.
Most thermostat 's are 90 deg C.
Yes /No ?

Typically my engine oil temp. is 10-15 C lower than coolant when at speed after 40-50 Km of driving (15-20 C outside temp)

By the way liqui moly oil + ceramic additive has reduced the diesel engine noise. It sounds almost like petrol

I'm attracted to reducing the Diesel clackers but the temperature detail is unclear to an FD driver. Did the additive change the temperature?

I haven't measure the Temperature of engine and oil.
But the engine noise is reduced and I can hear it working better.

Also if you search online for reviews about this company's additive products
they have great reviews for all.
