    used engine restore, now oil pressure ???

    I changed my oil this morning and poured a bottle of some engine flush. Drained the oil, put 2 quarts in and dumped a whole bottle of that Restore Engine Restore additive and poured the remaining oil. Start her up and checked everything, I noticed that the oil pressure is reading at 20-25psi at idle. While cruising it would read 40-45psi, when i let off it goes back down to 20 and at WOT it would go up to 55-65psi. I changed the oil again after driving around town hoping it would come back up but no luck, it still reads the same.I used Penzoil Platinum 10w30 and a Purolator PureOne oil filter.

    maybe you had a bunch of gunk clogging up your oil passages and it cleaned it out.. thus lower OP?
