1997 Chevy S-10 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 151xxx miles

Hello, I have a 1997 chevy S10 pick up 4cyl with a 5 speed. And I am wondering if it's somthing I should be worried about, my oil pressure gauge shows werid movements while driving, shifting, driving or at an idle. But it has never went below the 20 mark but when starting it up it nearly hits the 80 mark on the gauge. And it move weridly after it's warmed up but the truck drives strong and great. I hope there is a good answer out there for the causes of this. Thanks, mike

Check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge-could be the oil pump pressure relief valve sticking

I got the 94 with the same set up mine has done that since the day I bought it I put a brand new reman in it and it does the same thing it could make a difference on what oil you put in it and the weight of the oil it is nothin I would worry about as long as you stay about 20psi while idleing and more while drivin
