Maybe I missed it in Search, but what are normal and max oil temperatures? It was 95 degrees and driving 75 mph yesterday. Temp went to 214 degrees. Are towing temps expected to be higher - that’s why I need max safe oil temp.
2020 touring, Max temps seen on 10% grades at 60-65 Maintained with Cruse is soft setting Coolant temp 210 Oil engine 230 Avg rpm 2300 to 3800 Boost avg was around 8psi on long grades no loss of power. Avg mpg 11 over all. Preload of gear 4859 One tank, food and gear 5002 +/- 20 on scale Tounge...
@Merope any app recommendation? I use torque lite with my $10 OBD reader and wondering if I can use Android auto to put the torque screen with turbo, various temps gauges etc onto the infotainment screen.
There is a thread on here where someone linked to a few apps required to use Android Auto to show gauges on the head unit. I tried it, and it does work, though I found it a bit clunky, and the Pandora audio kept cutting in and out when feeding it through. I don't know if it was related to the gauges or not, but I did uninstall the apps and just have some gauges on the phone screen for when I'm interested in seeing some of them.
Then, of course you have to be looking at and messing with your phone to see the parameters. There is info in a thread in this forum as to how to get it to show up on the Ascent's head unit via AA, but it is more involved and then it's on the display instead of something else.
One solution to consider if you're doing a lot of towing is a dedicated plug in display unit and simply always have it showing the critical parameters. It's always there working and you just need to glance at it to check temps, etc. Something like this:
