Oil pressure reading

Is this a normal oil pressure reading for a warm car at idle? Thanks.

It should say somewhere in the manual.

I would say thats fine, the oil is fully synthetic so will be quite thin when warm-as long as you see a rise in pressure as soon as you increase the engine speed-you should be fine

You're not wrong-I just spent 10 mins trying to find out what exactly the bloody tyre pressures should be, I was sent from pillar to post and still couldn't bloody find it!!! I know it's on a plate by the drivers door lock now-I went onto Onstar to find it!!! Very disappointing manual-unless I was stupid enough to not understand how to wear a bloody seat belt, it seems the manual is tits on fish!!!

Oh sorry for the thread jack!!

If it's an LT, the oil is not synthetic.

I don't think any of the LTs get the 4pack console gauges.
So his can't be an LT.
