Re: Oil Temp?

Hairy green toads from Mars made Andrew.Schnellinger.B@bayer.com say:

My '89 100Q does this, too. The oil sits at about 70-80 degrees.
Both of my other cars are well over 100. I've been told that the
oil needs to get above 100 to boil off any water that gets into it.

I don't know if it's an off-kilter guage, or ???
