Question about Cars & Trucks
Ever since I got my 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport, the oil pressure gauge and the coolant temp gauge have not worked; Both gauges move to almost the same position when the ignition is on or the car is running (they read just under the half way mark on both gauges, and they do not move otherwise. I have replaced the temperature sensor, and the oil sending unit, without any success. Any ideas?

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

i recently went through the same problem, mine turned out to be a pressure seending unit, but i have also noticed that even after replacing the unit, that when my front main seal started going bad, it would alow pressure to release while decelerating
