What causes superheat?

  • Best Answer

    when there is no water in your car, or your oil got really old you have to change it. Old oil can get like jellos, they can close all the engine pipes.

  • Friction. Oil turns black because you're cooking it. Synthetic is better because it takes higher temperatures.

  • High RPM's in engines that are designed to run "red line" RPM's routinely will have added heat reduction engineering so things don't come apart when you mash the gas pedal. Super heated oil must have an oil cooler to control viscosity otherwise the oil film will become too thin and wear and mechanical failure is highly escalated. Lots of cooling engineering goes into race cars that have to run 500 miles or more at maximum engine RPM's. Even at that, those engines are only expected to last one race. Oil filtration on mass produced cars is bypassed during hard acceleration and high RPM's. Race cars can't filter oil through a conventional filter or the engine would be oil starved. Yadda, yadda, yadda.....
