Any waranties left? Is oil full? Any noises from engine? Did you put a mechanical gauge on it and check "real" oil pressure? (I would not drive it 'till I was sure about actual oil pressure!!)

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0L oil pressure gauge reading too high


if the gauge starts a 0 - goes to 1/2 , than full - sounds like gauge is OK - seems to me like the sending unit is bad - you could try removing the sender and trying to clean out the port with "brake clean", letting it dry than re-installing it. the pressure switch is still the least expensive place to start

Oil Pressure Always Runs High - 2002 Grand Jeep Cherokee


If your oil pressure is running in the red this would indicate too much oil in the system. You should have your oil changed and refilled soon or you run the risk of burning out the oil pump. At idle your pressure should be just over a quarter of what your gauge has. At highway speed it should not exceed 3/4 of the gauge unless your going in excess of 100 MPH. Change the oil and filter and your vehicle should be fine.

No/low oil pressure, high engine temp


I think you have a bad ground on your engine gages...but, more importantly, have your oil pressure checked by a mechanic.  If it is indeed only 20 pounds the engine is sadly on it's last legs.
When you receive advice from this website you have to understand that without the item in front of us, we are only able to provide "a best guess" as to what the problem might be based on you description of the defect.  If you haven't described a clear and precise description of the defect you decrease the chances of an accurate reply.  Thank you.

You say you changed the cam sensor. A1391 code is a crank sensor on the top of the trans. bell housing.

Oil pressure gauge


This is most likely a sending unit problem or a poor ground to the guage, try the sender first.
