I did forget to mention that I had the dealership fix a rattle in the dash. Well, it is not really fixed but it is not as annoying as it use to be.
No leaks and the level is fine.
I pulled the codes and this is what I have:
Engine Oil Pressure Sensor Circuit.
Reverse Lane Control Circuit High
Maybe it is the switch after all.

Damn it wicked, my oil pressure never hits 30 psi at idle (at normal operating temps).
Either my pump is jacked or... are you sure about that 30 psi at idle??
I'm sort of worried.
cold 29 degrees. 39 psi at start up
up to 58 during accel
42ish stop lights
lunch time 60 degrees
45 stop lights
same on accel
I changed the oil yesterday (M1 and Fram ultra). Always used M1 but usually with Mobil filter. I admit I dont usually check oil pressures but new kind of filter made me wonder. So I was gettin 50-52 psi at 2000 rpm and 18 -20 psi at idle. This with an oil temp of up to 212F (checked at idle). I was a little worried by these figures but some of the posts on this thread have reassured me that my (beautiful, rev happy) motor isnt going to explode/seize.
I havent looked what it was at the oil temps quoted but at 60F the oil is still getting warmed up, still, doesn't seem to be enough of a change in psi, i.e. "42 at idle, 45 at stop lights, same on accel". Unless the motor idles at 1500 rpm?
