Default Oil pressure gage

On my '05 SLE I have 60psi at start up and then the gage moves between 25 and 35 psi. I thought it was suppose to hold steady at 40psi when warmed up? I do have fresh 5-30 and new filter in it. Any clues?

Is your rpm down a bit at idle? Inspect the air filter and clean it if needed.

is it dipping to 25-35 while its in gear and you are stopped, or is it dipping that low while you are driving? If its while you stopped in gear, I don't think you have a problem.

What weight oil are you running?

It'* dipping when in "drive" stopping at a light and fully warmed up. I use 10-30 or 5-30.
