good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist

there are times we need more information and need to ask you questions. there is no additional charge for this.

it is normal for oil pressure to be higher when cold and drop when hot due to the viscosity of the oils. the specs for your vehicle are 45-50 cold at 1200 and hot 35 at 1200/ idle is 40-45 cold and 15-20 hot.
