You should have like 20 lbs oil pressure at an idle, and 40 cruising down the highway. To verify the oil pressure use a mechanical gauge for checking at the oil pressure sending unit port. Either the oil pressure sending unit is bad or the main bearings and bearings threw out the engine would be worn.
