I have a 2001 chevy silverado reg. cab 4.3 vortec v6. my question is what is the average or standard oil pressure for this motor at warm or hot idle? since the oil pump is still driven by the distributor is it the standard 20 to 25 psi warm and 40 to 60 while driving? the reason i'm asking is i just bought this truck a month ago and i just assume it was the same as my 94 GMC x-cab.All comments welcome or send emails with threads to this info on gm oil pressure. thanks

My daughters 97 4.3 is about 48 PSI at idle with new oil and an AC Delco PF 53 filter.

Is this after it has ran a while and the oil is hot? or is this at a cold start?
