SOURCE: 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6cyl 4.0 - High oil pressure

The test is to connect an external gauge to the oiling system and get a reading there. if normal pressure, the sender (transducer) would be suspect, if pressure is too high, further surgery is required, typically a pressure relief valve got jambed. Jambed is very rare, and I would want to know why...

The transducer, which changes the pressure into a voltage value, does fail eventually, and typically is inexpensive to replace.

The oil that you use should be exactly what is specified on oil cap or manual, and no higher or lower weight.

The oil sending unit is located on the engine block behind the drivers cylinder head area.You have to climb up on the motor to see it cause it is hard to see behind the wiring harness.You may also want to purchase a new sending unit because it is very long and you might need to buy the sending unit socket to replace it.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Oil pressure gauge is not registering a reading. oil pressure is good. any suggestions on what the problem may be?


o.k. but the sender has a bimetal element inside it even if the connection looks good the sender inside can be damaged and not making contact thus no reading also I think you might have the wrong sender installed so here's the photo's to help you

2.9L and the 2.3L are the same for each engine with the light the gauge senders are different this could be the problem wrong sender installed and its not reading pressure because it can't? good luck stephen

Low oil pressure


There's a couple of things you can try. You could have a bad oil pressure sender or a bad gauge. Without spending a lot you could replace the sender unit. If the gauge is defective, it is more expensive and the new sender was a waste of money.

You could have someone put on a pressure test gauge which would be threaded into the hole from removing the oil sender. This will tell you if the oil gauge and old sensor are accurate. If the readings from the mechanics add-on gauge are still low, then you have an internal engine problem.

A mechanic will cost you to hook up a test gauge, and you still may have to buy a new sender. Probably the best thing is to do is install a new sender yourself and if it works you are done; if it does not help either go to a mechanic or replace the gauge.

An internal engine problem could be an oil pump, or bearings.

Oil pressure gauge reads zero all the time.


Replace stock sender with basic mechanical gauge to see what really up, or take wire from stock sender and ground it to see if gauge comes up to top. If so, replace sender. (NOTE: Do not use teflon tape or any sealer on threads of new sender as this is the electrical path for ground.)

Low oil pressuer light comes on when at idol


You'll have to determine the actual oil pressure. We use a mechanical gauge fastened to one end of a 3' length of high pressure hose. An appropriate fitting at the other end of the hose is threaded into the opening that the oil pressure sender is removed from. Run the engine until warm and read the gauge with the engine idling. If the oil pressure is below 7 lbs the engine probably has seriuos problems. If the oil pressure is higher than that you probably have a bad oil pressure sender. Otherwise you can just change the sender and see if that corrects your problem.

Engine runs fine oil checks out good yet oil light comes on?


You need to verify that oil pressure is ok.
They sell gauge at the parts store which has to be connected to the engine block via oil pressure sender hole.
For that , take out oil pressure sender(unscrew) and screw the gauge in to the hole (con thread).Run the engine and see if pressure is ok at idle and on higher RPM.Gauge suppose to have scale (norm. , low , high ).If oil pressure within specs , repl. oil pressure sender.
Or just replace oil pressure sender and see if that helps.They are not expensive ~ $30.00 , gauge probably the same money.

Oil pressure gauge not reading on my 1994 jeep wrangler. oil is full just the guage has no pressure and not alot of power


The oil pressure specification for your engine is 13 PSI at idle hot, 37 to 75 PSI at engine RPM higher than 1600. I suspect your oil pressure gauge sender unit or gauge is inaccurate. I would have a known accurate mechanical oil pressure gauge temporarily screwed into the present oil sender unit to verify actual pressure.

If you have the correct pressure I would replace the sending unit first.

0il gauge keep reading low pressure


Either you have low oil pressure , or the gauge or sending unit is not working. Oil pressure on my 94 is quite low at idle , but higher when reving. quickest ,cheapest, easiest, first thing to do would be repalce the oil pressure sender unit.
