A New Chapter - Skoda Singapore

Recommended Posts

I'm sure it will still be a great functional car...but it just doesn't look Schoda to me anymore, not that it's ugly though.

That's normal what...

Old normal taken in august and new normal taken today. I used to see oil and water over 105degC. Now no more at all.

Push also hard to get past 100.

Could be due to many factors.

1) Replaced broken thermostat/water pump

2) stage 1 tune running higher AFR.

3) swap out plastic sump with a full metal one.

4) swap out oil filter cap with a full metal one.

5) extra 1 litre of oil capacity due to larger sized metal oil sump.

After some googling, it appears 100-110C engine oil temp is normal.

I think your metal oil sump help dissipate the heat alot.

Because we are mild drivers, we have very feathery light right feet.

And we wake up early in the morning to drive ourselves to work, on the least congested expressway before half the singapore wakes up.

For me, I cover 17 + 38km in the morning, and pretty much the same to get home at night, with the majority of 85% on the expressways.

Sure, the FC is great, but you have to pump petrol 2-3 times a week loh.

 

My tuner asked me to drive harder can, because I drive so mildly, the tune went into a soft limp mode, when I tried to go hard.

The tune needed a day or two to see my driving patterns and adjust accordingly, was driving way too mild first day in.

Its mid week, and wow, the torque is just lovely across the board, whack on demand.

i actually work early in the morning as well, so my journey to-and-fro work (about 25km++) is quite smooth, the car calculates around 11.5km/l

but when i travel around my estate in the evening to fetch my boys and missus, the 3-5km journey sometimes drop to 5km/l according to the car.

so net net i guess around 8-9km/l bah.... not that i'm really complaining, just more of envy

I think the oil temp gets very high for 2 reasons

1) Start/stop traffic

2) pushing very hard on track.

interestingly, when you flick to sports mode, the oil temp drops. Not sure why.
