Question about Cars & Trucks
Pressure gage drops when accelerator not pressed as soon as you step on accelerator pressure returns to normal?
Have the oil pressure checked with a special test tool, you may have a defective oil pressure sending unit. If the pressure is low then you have other more serious problems and the truck should not be driven until the oil pressure issue is resolved, low pressure will destroy the engine if left unrepaired.

Before you spend money on a new gauge. Get an oil pressure testing gauge for $20 , remove the oil pressure sending unit and test the oil pressure. If oil pressure at idle and 3000 rpm's is a-ok via spec's ( big money repair items) then its either the gauge a clogged or defective sending unit or the circuitry. (little money repair items)
You can also have this done at a repair shop.

That is normal. As you accelerate and rpm's increase the oil pump rpm increases. I think the oil pump runs 1 to 1 or 2 to 1 with the crankshaft rpm. Check the oil and inspect for any visual leaks if the gauge does not operate like that consistently. If it is intermittent or it just started acting that way, the sender my be bad. Other than that any Chevy Dealer will say that is normal.
