2010-07-06: UPDATE TSB: A10A0071: COA41, a Continental Airlines Boeing 767-400 (registration N78060) was 32 NM NNE of Stephenville, NL en route from Rome, IT to Newark, USA, when the pilot declared a PAN PAN PAN due to low oil temperature indication on the number one engine (GE CF6-80). The pilot requested an altitude of 24000 feet and after consulting with maintenance continued to Newark. Continental maintenance advised that this aircraft had the same indication during the previous leg after which the oil temperature sensor was changed.
