Suddenly lost oil pressure, now truck won't start.


Have you checked pressure with a mechanical gauge ?
If you really don't have pressure there's not much you can do without pulling the pan.

Backfires and stumbles when gas pedal is floored


There are a lot of diffferent things possible, the backfiring is usually caused by a timing issue. Which could also cause some of your loss of power, but not always. Try checking your fuel pressure to see if there is a clog, also your timing is computer controlled so this means your timing chain is worn spark plugs and wires could be bad or you have a cracked distributor cap rotor bug bad, or even a bad distributor or even as simple as wrong ground placement for motor. Best choice is to start small and then work your way up. Also if disributor has ever been taken out then you will have to reset your oil pump drive because your distributor runs your oil pump with your cam-shaft.

A solution is hard to give with out looking at and doing some testing but advise and help i can do, this sounds like a lack of fuel pressure, it died out and was hard to restart and backfiring from loss of fuel, this sounds to me like a fuel pump that is on the way out,

The first thing would be to have a fuel pressure gauge connected to fuel rail so that you can watch the pressure as you drive and see if you loose pressure when car begins to die out or back fire. good day

2.4l has gas in oil and no power


check the fuel pressure regulator and the map sensor vacuum hoses. as for the not revving above 4000 rpm is what the computer limits the engine to with no load on it, like in park or neutral.

1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0L engine. Oil


I'm assuming the engine is still running and no engine noise has occured due to loss of oil pressure, and it is just the gauge that is not reading? If so, the oil pressure switch that is located on the camshaft sensor, could have a bad connection or the oil sensor will need to be replaced. The oil sensor is located on the left side of the engine and is mounting horizontally on the camshaft sensor housing.

If your engine is free to move around, your engine may be losing rotational force to engine twist. Technically, when there is a sudden loss of rotational power in the engine rotating assembly, this could cause the oil pump to stop rotating for a split second. however, there are many more reasons that you need to get the mont replaced anyway.

85 with TBI only needs 13lbs of fuel pressure. verify that the fuel filter is clean. there is no easy way to ck fuel pressure, special adapters are needed, I dont have info here at home but there should be a relay for the pump, on the firewall and the oil pressure switch also powers the pump. did you replace the pump trying to fix this problem or did you just mention it to help troubleshoot the problem? verify that the fuel pump wiring has a good ground, should have been a eyelet that bolted to the frame..when you initially turn the key on, you should hera the fuel pump power up for 2 seconds, then go off, after the engine starts, the power for the pump goes through the oil pressure switch.

Afer being driven 5-7 miljes my 99 tauras loses


I would have to say your engine is probably shot. The bearings are probably gone. It is possible, i suppose, that your oil pump is faulty. As soon as the oil warms up, and becomes thin, the rods and lifters start to rattle. The same goes for the oil pump, as oil becomes hot, and thin, it may not be pumping properly. I would try a used oil pump, and see if there is any difference before i wrote the engine off.
