Oil pressure question

I have a 2010 2ssRs. Hey does anyone have issues with there oil pressure being super high when your engine is cold? Im not sure if this is normal but when I start my car up in the morning the oil pressure goes all the way up to 70 psi. Then ill get a hesitation between first and second gear untill the car warms up a little. Is that normal? Has anyone else had that issue? thanks

Thats normal. Oil is thicker when its cold so it will be a higher pressure. As it warms up the oil thins out and the pressure drops.

The hesitation on the other hand, doesnt sound normal. That would have nothing to do with the oil though.

Absolutely normal. When the car is not up to temp, the car will hesitate. The computer doesn't deal with combustion until the car reaches a certain temp.

I see this on my 2012 SS as well. Oil pressure is just under 3/4 when the engine is cold, then drops to just below 1/2 after it's warmed up. The hesitation is there as well when cold. It's not terrible, but it is noticeable. All seems pretty normal to me.

On page 4-12 in your owner's manual it states:

Engine Oil Pressure Gage
The oil pressure gage, located in front of the shifter, shows the engine oil pressure in psi (pounds per square inch) when the engine is running. Canadian vehicles indicate pressure in kPa (kilopascals). Oil pressure may vary with engine speed, outside temperature and oil viscosity, but readings above the low pressure zone indicate the normal operating range. When the oil pressure reaches the low pressure zone, a message appears in the Driver Information Center (DIC).

If you feel as if it could be an issue, your dealership should be able to diagnose the concern.
