1988 jeep Cherokee oil leeks. car shakes after I take my foot off the gas at 35mph. also car sometimes dies in stop and go traffic and I hear a hissing noise like air when car is in park. I think it may be the oil pump. Can I get some help before my husband gets under the car?

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
The oil pump is in the pan you may be leeking oil from the oil sending unit next to the oil filter or the filter may be leeking . get under vehicle after safely securing it wipe off and figure out where it is leaking from if oil pan is rusted through replace oil pan. usually its the oil sending unit switch usually under 20 dollars for part and it screws on and off
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,
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
