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 1994 jeep cherokee sport with only 89,000 mile . the top of the motor has a loud kocking . what could it be . a rocker loose or broke

Yeah either one...but that doesn't cause the low oil pressure light to come on. When you have oil pressure light comes on, that means that your oil pump is failing and/or your main bearing seals are failing. Costly repair.

1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Oil leaking from the flywheel. Is this the crankshaft oil seal? How dificult to replace. Any good websites with drawings for reference?

Very likely it's the rear seal. You will have to remove the transmission from the jeep in order to gain access to and change that seal.

1996 jeep cherokee shuts off with no warning signs cranks back up and may not do it again for days.always happens when cold. replaced crank sensor; distributor; coil; plugs and wires.need help

Suspect fuel pressure. You could install a fuel pressure guage. There is always a fuel pump cutoff safety switch. It is either in oil pressure switch or alternator connection. But have you changed the fuel filter?

High oil pressure and oil leak around oil filter seal.

It sounds like the check valve in the oil pump either has some trash in it or has gone bad. If it's a two wheel drive I don't remember the oil pan being that hard to get off. You can then drop the pickup and oil pump and soak them overnight in some parts cleaner. That may solve the problem, if there's trash in it. But if you're going to go through that much trouble, an oil pump shouldn't be that much I'd just replace it. So the problem doesn't come back. Good luck.
