Question about 2000 Jeep Cherokee
Depending on the range of rise and fall, this is completely normal. Oil thins out as it gets hot so you will notice the pressure drop significantly at hot idle. A typical value would be 20psi, then as the engine revs up, the pump creates more pressure because it can now keep up with and exceed the leak-down or bleed-off from the bearings. The maximum pressure would be limited by the relief valve in the oil pump which could typically be as high as 60psi.
