more clarification


as per what you said,
"Yes, it does. The 60 means that it will be like a 60 weight oil at 100C oil temperature.
The heavier weight oil does raise the oil pressure. "

This is what I don't understand, assuming your logic above, I would expect 10w60 would be
higher oil pressure than 20w50. But instead, I am getting LOWER oil pressure when
car is warmed up (after 10 minutes of driving). And it's not a gradual oil pressure of
5 dropping to 4. I don't see 5 at all with 10w60 Redline Synthetic.

The oil sender/sensor was replaced when I first bought the car in 2010, so I don't suspect
it's faulty...
