Sounds like sending unit, should be located by where the oil filter is.

fuel pressure seems a bit high...could be a bad regulator. can't remember if yours is on top of the sending unit (on tank) or on the fuel rail though. Do more testing there.

I have a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee (4 L) with 225,000 miles. When idling and engine hot, oil pressure guage drops to zero. Any way to tell if it is the pressure sensing unit or not?


ook up a external pressure guage where the sending unit is you will know forsure. with the milage i would guess that the oil pump may be the prblem or to much clearance in yhe bearing.

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.

Oil Pressure Drops While Driving


your oil pump is either weak or there is sludge i9n the oil pan. my adives is to have the oil pan dropped . chances are sludge is the culprit. as the oil get's warm the pressure should only drop slightly but pressure is generally dictated by engine rpm. pumps are gear driven so if it was a bad pump your oil pressure would start out very low at start up.
