I just finished changing my oil with the proper oil filter and using 5qts of 0W-20 Pennzoil Ultra.

When I start the Jeep the oil pressure registers at 30psi. The pressure stays at 30 even as I begin to accelerate. If I stomp on it the oil pressure will go up but then go then return to 30psi.

The oil pressure functioned normal prior to my changing the oil.

Any thoughts?

What pressure were you running before?

What weight oil?
0W-20 . Pressure before at idle was like 30-32psi.

Maybe this is normal. I read another post where they were saying it stays around 30 until you get to 3000rom. I'll have to check that

It could always be a gauge reading wrong.

Stranger things have happened.

This is correct.

Sounds normal.

Mine does the same thing. The oil pressure will suddenly climb at around 3,000 rpm but return to 30 psi below that.
