Hissing noise generally is associated with a vacuum leak (which also causes rough idle and stalling) Find the source of the hissing noise and likely you will have found the problem.

    Reviewing what I just posted, I neglected to mention oil leak...however, that should be treated as a separate (but important) issue. At least 75% of all oil leaks I've seen on jeeps are at the valve cover, check there first.

What is wrong if it will not idle

It would help to have engine codes but it sounds like leaking injectors hard to start because any time the key is on gas is just running into the engine. No idle to much gas. Oil level high because of gas in oil going past rings could blow oil pan off. High speed fine. replace injector or injectors. Look down throttle body with key on and see if gas is leaking out. If this help someone please rate it

This sounds like a bad idle air control valve, but also make sure the throtlebody is clean, use a toothbrush and some throtlebody cleaner, spray and clean with brush, make sure to open plate by having someone hold gas pedal to floor, after cleaning if truck still stalls then replace the idle air control valve,

possible bad oil level sensor. The shifting problem is most likely unrelated.

What has to be done to replace an oil pump on a 4.0l 1988 Jeep Cherokee?

Let me guess... you want to change the pump because the pressure is low... Unfortunately, it's likely that unless you find a ton of debris on the pickup screen, changing the pump will do nothing for you. There is a 99% probability that your engine bearings have worn to the point that you are loosing more oil going around the bearings than is acceptable. This will also eventually affect the oil wiper rings on the pistons which are not designed to wipe that much oil from the cylinder walls. Once you have removed the pan, plastigage both rod and main bearings. Likely, you will find that you need a rebuild!

Where is the gas leaking from? To clear a flooded engine, keep your foot all the way down on the gas pedal while you try to start the car. As it starts keep holding until it sounds like it's smothing out then slowly release. You can also change the spark plugs if that does not work.
