If the fuel pump(s) run while the pressure is falling, replace the fuel pressure regulator and (although I'm sure you've already done this), replace the fuel filter. If the fuel pumps appear to be turning off by themselves, replace the inertia (fuel cutoff) switch.

I have a 89 jeep wrangler with a 2.5 engine and ax-5 trans. it is knocking in all gears but 4th.


may want to do an oil change/filter on trans-then neccisary ajustments from a repair manual--if still persist then rebuild may be in order--trans can last 250 thou miles but heat is the killer

Engine oil pressure light stays on


Could be the oil pressure sender unit failure or oil pump failure. Have it checked . If it is the oil pump you can severely damage the engine if you keep running the car.

1989 jeep cherokee makes loud knocking noise in straight line six 4.0 engine. Engine does not smoke and does not appear to have a miss.


Four things can give you a knocking noise. 1. failed rod bearing 2.failed main bearing 3. Bad piston wristpin 4. broken flex plate (auto trans)
If It's a bearing, likely you are seeing lower than normal oil pressure. Any bearing repair requires the pan to be dropped but to do the job correctly requires engine removal, crank re-grinding or replacement and oiling system cleanout (expensive). Wristpin (piston/rod assembly) can be serviced without engine removal but pan and cylinder head need to be removed. Flex plate is pretty much a trans remove and replace, with new wheel.
Only a good experienced tech can differentiate between the noises so I suggest you seek aid in your diagnosis, though, if either bearing or piston is the problem I'd likely find another engine before considering the repair.

What is the correct oil pressure for a 1989 pontiac trans am with the 5.7


Generally, the pump should put out about 10psi for each 1,000 rpm that the engine will be run at. If the shift will be at 6,000 rpm, then the engine should have 60 psi when warm at 6,000 rpm
