so did my oil and filter change this weekend...... after replacing with fresh oil it seems like my oil pressure is up.... it rises above half initially and gets up around 3/4 it used to sit just below half when at idol then get up a little shy of 3/4 when running..... now im thinking i over filled it?
is this normal and if i did over fill it a bit is this a problem???
Hot idle is 10 to 15 psi. Just below the second line on your gauge. The first line being zero.
And as stated it will go up as the engine speeds up, the pump is mechanically driven so the faster the engine spins the faster the pump spins, the higher the oil pressure will go.

God I miss that Jeep. Forgot the kinda Jeep, 80 SX4.
my 01 has the true oil pressure gauge. running at the 40 mark when at hot idle (sometimes a hair below the 40 mark)
