Default engine external temperature

Hi guys,
does anyone know what is the engine external temperature of 911 (mod.993)?
It seems very hot, and I suppose it's about 200 °C (about 350°F) but I'm not sure.

I ask this because I am very worried about oil leak from the tappet packing!
Lately some white smoke comes from the engine box; I cleared the engine from oil and everything was fine again... but could them cause a fire? (!)

Thanks for any help!

More than likely you have oil that is dripping down onto the exhaust and causing a puff of smoke. While the engine exterior is extremely hot, it is not going to light the oil on fire.

In your vehicle oil is coming out when you start it along with the smoke. This is a clear indication that your engine is leaking oil but dont feel panic as it will never lightened fire , might can create problem in its functionality
