Thanks to all who do their thing for LATP, totally enjoyed the day, left a tad earlier than planned kids eh...

Met some people, talked to some that I have no idea who you are, and a couple of people i did wanna speak to/meet always seemed to be uber busy when spotted...

180 mile round trip, the furthest I've driven pheebs, all seems ok, couple of odd noises at 60mph and the oil pressure light is on more than I'd like but driving her today in the words of rog..

Til next year..

Glad you made it back safely! I enjoyed the short convoy; Pheobs looks the danglies at 50mph in the middle lane at the A1/M1 junction with hot hatches and wagons piling past either side!

What's your thinking with the temps then? Worth trying a different rad? Think I'm going to have to investigate mine a bit further...
Every mile's an adventure (and that's just the Vivaro).

H2O didn't rise all that much tho, steady 85c pretty much all the time. It's only the oil that concerns me..

Your rear end didn't look too bad either,  whstle If that Beemer knob jockey had have been slightly more of a dick it would have been a different story

What engine you running? What oil grade is it?
Bollocks to the lot of you.

20/50 cured it in a 2.25 I know that was on 10/40.
Mine is on 20/50 and no problems at all.

would the thicker oil stay cooler or just cure the oil pressure light after the run?

I don't honestly know mate, I just know it is recommended for older / higher mileage petrol engines.
If the engine is worn it will help with the oil pressure but if it is beyond that then it will be spannertime  spdydnc

Hopefully a bit of both. I've never used 10/40 in an older land rover, (or any older ie pre mid seventies car) always thought it was a bit thin. Definitely worth trying 20/50 it could solve the oils pressure thing and the oil cooling issues
