Might be that the oil pressure switch is going out. Unless this has been happening for a while now.

SOURCE: oil pressure gage at zero

I have the same problem,an erratic reading on the oil pressure gauge.I have been in touch with Chrysler Jeep (USA) and this is a common problem.The oil pressure sensor needs to be replaced this is on the oil pump by the oil filter.I changed mine and no more problems.

SOURCE: Oil leak from sensor

It's called an oil pressure sending unit. There are two versions one for vehicles with a light on dash, one for those with a gauge. It's not expensive and MUST be replaced. Not hard to do.

What causes a2004 jeep grand cherokee oil pressure gauge to go up and down

Not enough oil in the engine. ( I assume you have checked this.)

Too much sludge in the oil pan. ( I assume you have been changing you oil regularly.)

Bad Oil Pressure Sending unit. (Most probable cause.)

Bad Oil Pump.

Loose electrical connection at either the Oil Pressure Sending Unit or at the dash console.

have the fault codes read and replace the faulty units. Ask the service person if they pressure cleaned the engine as that quite often causes problems with water getting into the connections and shorting out

First time I start the engine in the morning there is a clatter (lifters?). This happens almost every morning, but only the first time. Is there an oil line that feeds back to the lifters that maybe...

To prevent this from happening, you have to use the viscosity your engine specifies. If it says to use 5W30, use that viscosity. Dont use the 10W40s or other grades just because of the mileage. Your oil pump is designed to place the proper oil pressure with that grade and if you change it, you alter the flow rate and pressure. For that same reason, I always use a new oil filter. The dirty filter will restrict the flow also affecting the lifters. I also recommend Z-max additive to clean out your oil system. It cleans it and protects your engine at the same time. No other one really works as good. Put it in while the oil is hot. As you put it in, you will hear the difference. I'm an engineer, so I really am anal about what works and what does not. Good Luck!

Process on changing an oil pump on a 4.0L 1994 jeep cherokee

If you want to replace the pump due to low oil pressure, be aware that 99% of the time the pump isn't bad. Oil pressure loss is most associated with pressure bleed off at the crankshaft rod and main bearings due to wear. The pump is the first thing that gets oil and the last to not get it. If the engine runs out of oil there is far more damage than just the pump.
replacing the pump may seem to help for a few days but the problem will shortly return. That said, the only other reason to get to the pump is if there is hard carbon debris on the pickup screen causing an obstruction that cannot be dissolved using chems made for that (Amsoil engine flush, Rislone or even Marvel oil).
Good instructions for pan removal can be found in either chiltons or haynes manuals. The basics are: Jack up the vehicle form the body so the suspension is fully extended (You can get a bit more extension if you unbolt the shocks if you need to), remove anything in your way (starter, exhaust etc) Unbolt the pan and lower it. Unbolt the pump, put the new one on and clean all gasket surfaces. Replace gasket and reverse process to re-assemble.

I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited that is making a rattling/ticking noise under the hood and I cannot figure out what it is! We did an oil change and added Rislone, it quieted it some but not...

how many miles on it,sounds like lifter noise which is normal for high mileage jeeps,but if you have over 140k it is not a good idea to run synthetic oils as they are thinner than conv oil and it might start to consume oil.

I have an '02 jeep wrangler. Straight 6, 4.0 L

if this vehicle has a high millage then you have worn bearing if the oil pressure go's to low then this would be the problem, if not then you should have your lifters replaced but check oil pressure if the noise comes back when the oil pressure drops then you need to over haul your engine. if this information has been useful please let use know good luck

You need to verify the real oil pressure with a good oil pressure gauge. These are pretty simple gizmoes with a gauge and a hose. Get a hold of one and it screws in where the pressure sender is connected. Most engines need around 45 psi at idle. If it's not OK look for diluted oil, wrong viscosity oil or worse yet worn engine bearing or oil pump.

High engine oil presure

Hi, I had the same problem, same vehicle (same year), same engine. I bought an oil pressure tester at Harbor freight tools for $ 8. I was trying to figure out, if the pressure is really high, or just the sending unit is defective. The tester after connecting it to my engine was reading correct pressure for this vehicle ( between 25-30 PSI when idelling), which showed that the oil pressure sending unit is defective. At Advanced autopart store they want about $ 47 for the sending unit, so I put the defective one back in place (still reading H). I'm planning to replace it after next pay check :o) Good luck.
