2005, C7 Oil pressure.

Hello every one. I have a question about how much oil pressure a C7 should have? When it is cold it will peg the gauge. But if you let it warm up, What is good for it. It stays in the Normal range. I just never seen one with such oil pressure when its cold. Has around 30 psi at idel and 60 going down the road at 1500. Thanks Eric

It's normal for the c7 to do that mine does he same thing, when the oil is cold the pressure is a lot higher and it causes the gauge to peg, it's important to warm it up before you get on the gas pedal. Joe
