|adrst2.3||actually it was about a quart low but the issue is still there i mean if its an issue.last night i added the oil and drove about two blocks and at idle it would sit at around 30-35(i know its not fully warm so maybe thats why all was cool) but today heading to work during stop an go driving it would drop to around 15 and set of the warning light so i dont know what gives.for knowledge sake i want to be properly informed about these oil pressure gauges so im not driving around like an idiot not knowing how they work an what to look for in the readings.so if you or anybody can inform me on what to look for when i look at the digital read out please by all means share your wisdom!|

Where is your sender located?
If next to the oil filter, then no 10-15 PSI fully warmed up at idle is normal.
It's when you start seeing 5PSI, there is a problem, or when the oil pressure light comes on.

|adrst2.3||hey my oil pressure gauge reads low at idle between 10 and 15 but as soon as i drive of it climbs up to around 56-68.is this normal?.i figured at idle theres not much pressure since theres no load.i just want to make sure im correct.|
