Check oil pressure with a manual gauge when cold and see what it drops to after it warms up to operating temperature. You might've had a thicker oil before you changed it.

irodri911 has the right idea..check it with a manual pressure gauge...there inexpensive...can you also pull the valve cover and look at the oil flow up top there? even a bad lifter....

    Thank you. Mine stays around 60 even when it's reading low on the dipstick (that's at half a quart low). Then when full it reads around 70-75. Is this okay?
