Hi guys I am just wondering what the normal readings are for the temp gauge and general oil pressure... I have fitted a replacement engine in frontera sport 2l 8v and once engine is warm the temp gauge reads 3/4 hot sometimes abit more... Is this normal???? And oil pressure when cold is ok but once it warms up it drops massively on tickover but when engine is under load it goes up to 1/4 and drops again to practically nothing when on tickover???? Is this normal???? Also are the clutches auto bleed systems or manual??? Please help people

My gauges (usually) read;
Temp; from cold, rises to just over half, then when stat opens, drops to just under half.
Oil; quarter on tick over, half when driving/under load.
Fuel light; bottom of the red. (then takes between £10-£15 to get it out of the red again !)

As for the clutch, i believe its manual bleed (2 bleed nipples). hopefully someone will confirm.
