Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my 1994 ford thunderbird is running hot on oil. what are possible reasons why this might be happening?

1 Answer

Ok. You have an oil temperature gauge I take it, and the engine coolant is OK. Right? Correct me if that's not. How hot is it running? It should be about the same as coolant, maybe 200 to 240 would not be too hot. What kind of oil are you using?
