Oil pressure gauge on wrong side of pin

I have an 02 ranger that spun the mains from a bad oil pump, i replaced it with an 01 and made the necessary change overs. engine runs great! The oil presure needle is on the wrong side of the pin on the dash, when you start it up it wants to come to read the presure, but i can't because of the pin

My 2001 Ford Ranger Edge oil pressure gauge has been jumping around all over the place. Took it in today and they said pump needs replacing... and that they had to remove the engine to do so at the tune of...


Your oil pressure gauge works with the oil pressure sensor, which is screwed into the block, to transmit a reading. A faulty oil pressure sensor can cause the reading on the gauge to be erratic. You may have a bad oil pressure sensor. You should also inspect the wires going to the sender to make sure they are not loose, corroded, or shorted. If a new sending unit doesn't work, you can check the oil pressure with a manual pressure gauge. Testing for oil pressure involves fitting the oil pressure gauge with an adapter. Then you will need to determine if you have a gauge problem or an actual oil pressure problem.

My 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee cuts off while I'm driving.


If you have zero oil pressure thats a BAD sign, first have a mechanic check what the engines actual oil pressures are.

Oil perssure not steady on 02 ford ranger


Did you check oil pressure with a oil pressure gauge from the oil gallerys in the block. Determine if the oil pressure is adequate. Most likely its probably a bad gauge but if you used a oil pressure gauge and there readings inidictive of low source oil pressure then most likely you have a pump failure, or there is inadequate oil volume in your engine.

Oil pressure gauge on my 2000 jeep is on


The most common problem is a bad oil pressure switch on the 99-02 grand cherokee with the 4.7l v8. The part has failed on 90% of all 99-02 grand cherokees I have worked on. The housing is junk,but since it has lasted longer then 36,000 miles the factory would not issue a recall. The oil pressure switch can be purchased at any outlet. but have found the duralast was decent. that being said Go to autozone and get part # PS471 (oil pressure switch for 1999-2002 N code 4.7L V8.) chances are if you encounter the same problem after replacement you will need to drop the oil pan and un clog the oil sump.

To replace the switch, under the hood look for the power steering pump on the driver side of the vehicle, to the right and under the p/s pump is the oil pressure switch, If it is wet, its bad for sure, remember to disconnect the battery before service,as not to harm the gauges.

Possibly clearances "closing" at operating temparature? 20w50? Kinda heavy isn't it?Spun bearing - should make more noise than a "Tap"? I've heard several low and high mileage 2.9 engines "tap" but quits after warm up? That SEEMS to be somewhat common with the2.9 Sorry can't be more specific.
