Ok, drove it 10 miles on the highway (60 mph).
I did notice that after getting off the highway, the oil pressure at idle was back to its usual level (~1.8 bar). I checked the oil cooler (this is the long, rectangular mini-radiator next to the radiator, correct?) It was just barely warm (maybe 120 degrees F, as a guess...about the same as the radiator hose). Nothing like the valve cover (too hot to keep a hand on long). I then drove a few miles, in case the cooler had just started functioning, but it remained the same temperature. Is it supposed to get hot like the engine, or warm like the radiator hose?
