I have CEM on and I need help so my engine doesn't overheat. Which instrument should I be looking at in the 109 for engine temperature? What is the quickest way to bring the temperature down?

There is a foldout card that explains/shows instrumentation on all planes in detail. I believe it was the same one with the key commands on it.

Opening your Radiator is probably the best way to avoid overheating your engine or to cool it down if you have overheated it. Knowing how far you can push a plane before it overheats is also key. I can keep a 109 at around 90% throttle without it overheating, I do not rememeber exactly what number though. The different versions also behave differently depending on what kind of engine they have. The G6/AS for example has a SERIOUS problem with overheating.


I warn you though that CEM isn't really in working order yet. It is being addressed in a patch/patches and so I would wait for those before devoting any amount of time in figuring it out. Some gauges do not work either.

Search the game manual for a PDF file named "REFECARD"(I think), and there you can see every instrument onboard.
For example, in german planes, you should find a little black gauge, with a inscription like 0C( degrees C) wich shows you oil temperature.
Some russian and US planes have gauges to indicate "coolant temp".
Anyway if you need more info about CEM, try this:

Keep your RPMs within 2500 to 2800
