1995 3.8 Super I finaly have about 1000 miles on my NEW engine and with warm weather getting here. It seems that my oil pressure at idle is getting down to 25 - 30 PSI in gear as soon as I start moving she goes right up to sixty. Is idle pressure usally that low. It is a NEW engine and NRW pump high volume. I will check Mitchell on Demand when I get to work but I was wondering what other guys are seeing in there cars

Gene, we'll assume this is a '99 supercharged Riviera?

That is plenty of oil pressure, as long as you have over 15-20 at idle you will be set, 60 is a very good pressure when under load so you should have nothing to worry about. In warmer weather I see between 20-30 at idle and 50-65 under acceleration so you are fine =)
