Oil pressure on 2013

I have been watching my oil pressure gauge a lot lately. When I start my Camaro its around 30psi. As I drive sometimes it goes up to 70psi. Only 3400 miles. Only has had 1 dealer oil change. Doesn't seem normal to me. Any ideas?

The filter can blow off at 100 psi so no, that doesn't seem normal to me. More details please: LT, SS, mods, type of pressure gauge, etc

...and you're not Jesse D. Halter, are you?

Mine had 5,000 miles last year before being garaged and had your same readings. Similar after first oil change.

JDH,

I understand that you're seeking thoughts and opinions (with several responses already posted), but send me a message if you want to take it a step further and get an official diagnosis. I will then reach out to the dealer's Customer Care Specialist for additional assistance with potentially resolving this at the dealer level.

#PIP4690D: Normal Characteristic - High Oil Pressure Gauge Readings - (Oct 16, 2012)

Subject:Normal Characteristic - High Oil Pressure Gauge Readings

Models:2010 - 2013 Chevrolet Camaro
Equipped with 3.6L LLT or LFX Engines

The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.
Condition/Concern


Some owners may comment that the oil pressure gauge is indicating that the engine appears to be operating with very high oil pressure.
Recommendation/Instructions


Under various engine operating conditions 60 psi (413 kpa.) of oil pressure may be displayed on the oil pressure gauge. This should be considered as normal operation. In addition, during a cold engine start-up (especially during cold ambient temperatures) the oil pressure gauge may display at 70 psi (482 kpa.) or all the way to the right. This condition should also be considered as normal operation. As the engine and oil warm up, the gauge should begin to return to approximately 60 psi (413 kpa.).
Important: Because these operating pressures are considered normal operation, no repair attempts or parts should be replaced.
Customer Information


Please communicate to the customer this condition is a normal operating characteristic of their vehicle. This condition will not impact the designed performance or reliability of the vehicle.

I have a 2013 2LT. Bought it in August with 29 miles. My gauge did the same thing so I took it in to the dealer. They said it is normal. We even test drove another 2013 with 79 miles and it did the same thing. No worries

My 2LT oil pressure gauge flies everywhere, it's normal. If you notice, at the end of the gauge there isn't a red line. Also, you want variable oil pressure, if it was constant something would be wrong. It's a useless gauge in my opinion.
