Hey guys i was drivin round the coast in some pretty bad traffic yesterday in over 30 degree heat and noticed my engine light came on. So i was like shite n pulled over for a while thinkin it might have somethin to do with the heat. But then later at night there was a smash on the freeway and was siting in traffic again, and then the engine light came on again. So i figured it couldnt be the heat and lookin at my oil pressure gauge it it was showing about 38-39 psi. Then when i eventually got going again the oil pressure rose and all was ok.

So my question is...What is the lowest safe level my oil pressure should go?
oh by the way my car is a s/c vx if that matters.
