Had the pressure bypass valve malfunction on my 2.5 jeep put new oil pump in and with 45lbs. Oil pressure motor still sounds dry of oil,what gives?


it's not priming.
that grease trick helps.
is this some china pump off fleabay or a real jeep pump..???
did you do the below.:
1: the grease sure. and then prime the filter and the gallery behind the
filter.
2: With fuel and spark defeated, and spark plugs removed then with pressure gauge attached to sender port, did you crank it to get max pressure (my guess is this is the step you are posting on.)
i never start any engine, (after majors) unless i get #2 to work first the number 3, which is top end oil checks.

the pump is no priming.
In pro shops they make up a priming tool. so new engines are never
started, 1st time dry, ever.
one way is just a tank full of oil and shop air, and 2 valve.


maybe the new pumps relieve valve is stuck open, fully.
i rebuild my own classic engines, after all that work !!! i never
ever, skip these steps.
and for 100% sure, good pressure, and top end oiling on any major work.

I turn ignition to ready position. The fuel pump engages and prime's the line. I then start the engine. Engine starts and runs for a max of 15 seconds. As soon as the engine cuts out the fuel pump...


The crank sensor is a good candidate. Pretty common failure on jeeps.
To clarify, the fuel pump is on all time during engine cranking, and during engine running. When the engine cuts off, the pump will also be stopped. But, you will not lose pressure in the fuel lines and fuel rail immediately. The check valve in the pump is supposed to hold fuel pressure in the system for a good time-about 20 minutes. The pressure should bleed off very slowly.

Your fuel pump and fuel system is probably good, but if you really lose prime (or pressure) that quickly, then there is a problem. Best way to check is with a fuel pressure gauge after the engine cuts out. Or, if you have the test port schraeder valve on the fuel rail (looks like a tire valve), you can use a screwdriver to press the center of the valve. If gas squirts out, you do have fuel pressure, prime is not lost, fuel system is good, and you can assume problem is in the ignition circuit, not a fuel problem. Probably the crank position sensor.
Good luck, Casey.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Front windshield washer does not work. A while back, hit something on the road that cracked the reservoir. Patched the hole, back washer began working. Front still does not work...


Check to ensure the front reservoir pump is connected and receiving power. Is the fuse bad?
It is possible the pump inlet is clogged. This would require removing the reservoir and flushing it.
If this is a washer with an external, self-priming pump, is the pump uptake tube in the cap missing?

Fuel pump would prime then wouldnt then would. now doesnt prime at all


Your ecu engine computer is bad. It's what sends the signal to the fuel pump to turn on, prime. Have your ecu checked and replaced if necessary.

Primer on an oil pump for a 1999 jeep ? put new oil pump on but its not priming and not sure what to do


Best way to draw a prime is to put a long screwdriver blade (no handle) attached to an electric drill down into the oil pump drive slot (distributor removed). I actually use a distributor that has the top cut off without the cam gear, and just attach the drill to the shaft, but the screwdriver works pretty well too.
Only other option is to pack the inside of the pump with light grease, but that would require pan removal and I doubt you want to do that!!
Many pumps are replaced because of low pressure but the cause is generally a bad bearing...If that's the case you may find it difficult to prime.

It won't start when it is cold but starts fine when warm. Will start eventually if you pump the heck out of it and crank it and repeat quite a few times. I have a 91 cherokee that won't start when it's...


Try cycleing ur key a few times before actually cranking it alot of the time wen a fuel pump is about to go it wont prime cycling the key will prime it. As for the fuel gauge thats part of the fuel pump its called a sending unit and in the jeeps its all in one unit. it sounds like your fuel pump is about to go tho. i had the same problem with my 93 jeep grand cherokee laredo. i replaced the fuel pump and it runs fine now u can get it from your local autozone for about 140. hope this helps let me know
