Cool Oil Pressure update

Changed the engine oil & filter today. Valvoline 10w40.
With engine at normal running temperature, Oil Pressure now pegs at 3 whilst driving and goes to 1 at idle.
Same readings after 20 mile freeway journey.

Conclusion; dirty oil and/or clogged filter causing low oil pressure reading.
