Question about 1994 Jeep Cherokee
1994 Jeep Cherokee Sport Straight 6 4.0L, Automatic. Pressure gauge shows high oil pressure. The rubber seal on the oil filter gets distorted by the pressure and it losses most of the oil. I have replaced the oil pressure sending unit. It overheated and I replaced hoses, water pump, and radiator before this was a problem. I have been told I need to replace the oil pump. Does this sound reasonable? And does anyone have other suggestions?

It sounds like the check valve in the oil pump either has some trash in it or has gone bad. If it's a two wheel drive I don't remember the oil pan being that hard to get off. You can then drop the pickup and oil pump and soak them overnight in some parts cleaner. That may solve the problem, if there's trash in it. But if you're going to go through that much trouble, an oil pump shouldn't be that much I'd just replace it. So the problem doesn't come back. Good luck.
