1985 Chevy Corvette mileage: 69,000 Do I need an oil cooler? My new engine in my Corvette runs a 230-degree oil temperature. After running at 80-85 for 10-15 miles out of Atlanta traffic, but cools to around 215-220 at 70-75, range is this ok? I took the cheap route and decided not to replace the dirty cooler on the new motor. But, let me tell you, Jasper Engine Company! Hats off to you, this red 85 will smoke!
