Default Compression with SprayEngineFoam

Hey everyone!

I am trying to simulate a Diesel-Engine with sprayEngineFoam using Openfoam 3.0. I have a mesh that works fine with engineFoam, but sprayEngineFoam leads to a weird temperature distribution during compression. As you can see in the attachment, at -10 degree CA, the temperature in the mold of the piston is 500K higher than in the liner.

Does anybody know why this happens? As I said, mesh and BC work fine with the engineFoam- solver (no temperature gradients during compression).

Thanks in advance,

Apparently sprayEngineFoam calculates a wrong pressure- it should be around 40bar, but actually calculates 400bar . So there must be a problem with the solver?
