Diff Oil Temperature various MX5s

Postby drumtochty » Sun Jun 30, 2019 7:26 pm

There has been a good bit of discussion on the diff oil temperature on the UK Owners Club Forum.

There is a worry about the MK4 or ND in particular.

Just out of interest, I checked my Infra-Red, Non Touch, Thermometer against a few other thermometers and it appears to be within about 5C of all other units I tested it against.

We had a run out from Banchory to Lunan Bay, a hard run that ended up getting to the Glenshee Ski Centre a long hard climb and on the way home for me a climb up Cairn O' Mount again a hard climb.

The diff temperatures of the outside of the diffs on various cars was measured with the IR unit.

The results are tabulated below.

99 Mk2 1.8 IS Silver
08 Mk3 2.0 RC Sport Copper Red Sold
18 Mk4 2.0 GT+
