I dont know if this is anything I should worry about, but I just noticed today, when I get on the car at higher rpms, the oil psi will get to about 70-80, but as I hold the gas down, it will drop to 50-60, then go back up. Its more noticible when the engine is still not fully warmed up, however it still does it when the engine is warmed up as well. Could this be a leak somewhere? When the psi gets to high, its spraying out?? I'll check for leaks next time I change the oil, but just curious if I should worry. I havent really noticed if it did it before, I normally try not to stare at the gauge too long when I drive. Oil psi at idle is around 10psi or higher, and just regular driving I get at least 10psi for every 1000 rpm.

Your idle oil PSI should be about 15 or higher 10's kinda low. Have you checked your dipstick, may need oil.
