2002 2.5l no oil pressure on gauge. Runs fine...no

2002 Jeep wrangler SE 2.5l no oil pressure on gauge. Runs fine...no power loss or pinging.Just started today. Oil looks fine...guage first went to near zero. I pulled off and checked the oil level. It was ok. I cranked back up and got some pressure back at around 2100rpm. It went back up to 45 upon acceleration, then dropped back to zero where it stayed all the way home. Temp stayed 205ish all the way.

    Thanks Outdoorsman5...I had my buddy who is a mechanic check the pressure. He did so and verified that I needed a new sending unit.

You better put a manual gauge on your engine and make sure you have oil pressure. Could just be a faulty gauge or sending unit but I sure as heck would be checking it with a manual gauge.

Oil gauge does not work, engine runs fine


It is probably your sending unit, if your engine hasn't started knocking or seized by now it is probably fine. Either change the unit where it sits or have a technician check for oil pressure with a mechanical gauge.

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.

Oil pressure gauge goes up when car started, but then down to 0


u Have a problem with the oil sending unit. The sensor is located beack right side of the engine block. Take out the switch and make sure u have good oil PSI. Should be 6 psi at idle and around 50 at 4000 RPM. If the presure is ok replace the switch they are very cheap about 20 bucks. Please rate.

95 jeep wrangler: gauge indicates 0 oil pressure


Wire on oil sending unit may have fallen off or sensor itself may have gone bad. Check both. If engine has no tapping noises, likely it's not a pressure problem.

2002 jeep wrangler oil pressure gauge drops


When the gauge is at 0, is there any noise from the engine (tick, knock etc?) I would have someone put a mechanical gauge on there and read true pressure.Your driving pressure seems OK but if the low number is "real" something is wrong!

Oil gauge goes up and down.


If grounding the dash does not work, try putting a mechanical gauge on it and reading actual oil pressure. Pressure does change while driving, but should not wander. With mechanical gauge, check that running hot at idle (in gear if automatic) pressure should not drop lower than 15psi (I'd rather see 20) High reading should be around 40 -50 but no higher.Low pressure indicates a loss of supply or bad bearing on the crankshaft, high pressure may be caused by sticking pressure relief or restriction in an oil passage.

1997 Jeep Wrangler oil pressure gauge not working


The gage is working because it is coming on sometimes. The oil pressure sending unit on the engine is starting to go. I would replace the oil pressure switch on the engine first.

Oil pressure gauage reading high


depending on the weather, and how cold it is, oil pressure will run high until it warms up. now if it still runs high after it warms up then its most likely the oil sending unit.
