    Car Running Hotter

    Hey guys I need help. I have a 98 TA and last night my oil light came on. I put a couple of Castrol High Mileage quarts in it to get me by till the weekend when I can do an oil change. This morning while driving around the thermostat gauge fluctuated between 210-240 degrees staying close around the 240 mark. It's pretty cold outside and my car never hung around those temps. I also noticed as the temp increased the oil pressure gauge constantly decreased. The temp and oil gauges never went to red. Do I need to worry or is there a potential problem? Any thoughts would help.
