My oil pressure gauge...

My oil pressure gauge bounces around a little bit and I just changed the oil in it. Is that normal?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the vehicle? And when was the last time it was serviced?

46,000 and not sure when last serviced. I bought the truck in September

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chevy?

2016 Silverado 2500 Ltz hd

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Silverado yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. Just changed oil and oil filter. On idle it’s a little less than 60 and when I am moving it goes up a little

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I believe that’s it
