Possibly because you don't have enough oil.
normal oil temperature on a srt doge viper
low oil temperature
From 20 to 40 pounds PSI when the engine is at full operating temperature is normal. Any reading below 20 PSI may be cause for alarm.
above 200 degrees when the car is running
it is above the oil tank. When under the car, looking at the oil drain valve it is above that.
at very high temperature above 200C, usually yes
Right above the oil filter , in the engine block.
Nothing as long as it is within normal operating range Gauges are just and indicator--not gospel
if it is really cold where you live, and the viscosity of the oil would be the optimal for your car at that cold outdoor temperature. i.e. as oil cools it is less viscus. Therefore, in colder climates normal oil becomes too thick in the cold weather to run optimally, so if you use less viscus oil you can compensate.
The oil gauge shows the oil's temperature. The oil pressure gauge monitors the oil pressure for your viewing pleasure.
If only when cold - normal condensation burning off If when at normal operating temperature - could be head gasket leaking Water in oil? Oil in water? With engine at normal operating temperature remove oil dipstick and let a drop fall on a hot part of engine - oil will smoke and water will sizzle
