What’s the oil pressure on a GMC Truck?

When I got it pulled over and stopped, the gauge was just staying maxed no matter the speed. Once it was stopped I let it sit and put the key into accessory after a while and noticed the gauge went from 0 (when it was turned off) to 80 before the engine was even running – just in accessory. Now, how in the hell could that be?

What should oil level be on Silverado Sierra?

Leaving work the other day and the Check Engine light came on. YIKES!!! So I pull over and check the oil. Oil level was right on the mark. Start up the truck and let it idle for a bit. I was listening for any noise, especially lifters rattling. Didnt hear any thing, so I drove it home (about 30 miles). NO problems at all.
