Sounds like you may have an issue with your oil line / gauge , when you shut the engine off the oil psi should drop to 0 with in 2-4 sec , when you start the engine you should see full oil psi in 2-3 sec and colder at about 85 +/- psi is about right and 50 +/- is about right for hot 180+ deg and 8-10 min driving

Rule of thumb on a DOHC engine is about 10-12 psi for every 1000 rpm is all thats needed so at 3000 and you have 30 - 60 your good , 6000-7000 and you have 60-70 your good , this will change some with oil temps , type and weight of oils , age / miles on engine
