what is proper temp for A4?
I was using my boat yesterday (A4 engine) and noticed that the temp was up to 180 or 185. This seemed higher than I've seen before. I referred to the manual which indicates an upper temp of 165. I was running the engine for at least 2 hours total yesterday, but there were no appearances of problems. Strainer was clean ( I had just cleaned it the day before), no apparent leaking from thermostat or anywhere else, and exhaust seemed to be normal. Any ideas on whether I should investigate this further, and if so any ideas on where to start? Impeller? Anti-freeze? Although, I'm not sure where that goes.....it doesn't even refer to antifreeze in the manual.
