Scrapman1959 Posted May 15, 2013 Report Share Posted May 15, 2013 Flying home from work this afternoon my engine oil hit 230 and I had to pull throttle back to 5000 to keep it at 220. DA was 5000 ft, Cruising at 2400ft and OAT was 86 farenheit. Ten gallons total on board and my 160 lbs, so was very light. This was our first warm day this year, so problem may have been there some of the winter and not knowing it. It's a 2011 CTLS just over 500 hours. Everything else was normal temps. CHT's around 235 I think, but can't be sure of that, they were in the green. Any suggestions on what to try after I run hot water through the radiator and oil cooler to clear them of possible dirt and bugs which are not present looking at the front of the radiator. I do land on a grass strip daily and then taxi across a gravel road to hanger it, and this does make for some dust. Of course the winter shutters for the radiator were taken off a few weeks ago, so no tape etc blocking radiator. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
