How long is normal engine cool down?
I just bought a 2008 GC 3.0 CRD. It is my first diesel powered vehicle so I am still getting know it. Yesterday, my wife drove it about 30 miles, normal driving, at regular operating temp. Got home and parked it in our garage, letting it idle one minute to lub/cool the turbo. About 2 hours later I went out to check the oil level and noticed the engine still seemed VERY warm, like it had just been running. I started it and the temp gauge was half way between cold(at start) and normal operating temp.
Is this normal? Or is this merely the way diesels cool down?
