SOC prep -- Hot Oil Runs Fast !

After running around in the hot weather, I changed the oil on the '89 convertible today, to prep for the SOC road trip.

Man, does oil run out of the pan fast when it's hot.

I also washed the car, and vacuumed it out for the first time in forever.

A/C's not working, this could be a hot trip.

You don't normally drain your oil when it's hot?

maybe in denver, but certainly not up where Copper Mtn is. if you are looking up a forecast, use Dillon, CO.

Not when it's that hot. I've got an oil temp gauge, I usually like to do it when it's warm enough to move the needle but no more (100-120 degrees or so). Not 180-190. Makes a diff.

Or course it makes a difference...you sound surprised! That's like the most commonly dicussed and known thing about motor oil, its behavior under heat.

Greg, if your AC is indeed not functioning, keep the top up to keep the sun off of you and unzip the rear glass window. PaulH did that in my convertible last year when he drove it to Cleveland for me and said it worked nicely.

And if/when it is time to fix the a/c and a compressor is needed, Aireeca can point you in the right direction. Just make a note to have them tell the rebuild tech to use the correct pulley wheel the first time around.
