Anything above 1 is ok, but normally it should be above 2. Richard

I just noticed the drop in pressure after a oil change, could it be a oil pump going out

How much a drop, and how far down a drop? Maybe you just used a thinner weight oil this time? Richard

Above 1 for idling... pegged at 3 anytime you are driving.

Above 1 for idling... pegged at 3 anytime you are driving. ____________________________________________ The above is correct. As mentioned you may have a thinner oil in the engine...but the gauge should still be pegged when engine is being driven at speed. It is also possible that your guage may not be working properly. Generally, your engine should be safe as long as you have some oil pressure. It is when the pressure suddenly drops to zero that a major problem has occured.
