this is normal what grade oil do you have in the car. it sounds like the oil pressure coming out of the oil pump is low and when you speed the pump up the pressure builds. if you are running a 5w30 take it out and put a 10w30 in it. if you are running 10w30 throw a bottle of lucas in there just to build vascosity.

what happens is when the truck warms up the 5w30 becomes more like water and the vascasoity goes to hell

This is what a car does. Don't go wasting money unless it drops into the red zone at idle
