whats the standard oil pressure suppose to be at? i just recently changed my oil to a 10/30 oil, and i put 3 and a 1/2 qtsmaybe a lil less(from where i read) and when i warmed up my car oil pressure was hitting the 60 mark, and when i drove around the block it was hitting 90 whenever i hit the gas, questions are. and im in socal, so the weather is still a lil warm

is this oil grade ok?
did i put too much?

The oil will read higher for the first couple days (depending on how much you drive) after a change because it is fresh out of the bottle and it hasn't been heated up yet. Once oil gets heated up a few times or for a longer amount of time it thins out a little bit.
