Make should your car had this recall taken care of There's a piece that can leak brake fluid down wires and blows fuses that causes the speedometer to fail, its also a major fire hazard! (here's a link to check and see if your car still needs it done

I bought mine from a dealership and it turns out they didn't take care of it.

I changed the oil, new oil pan, new oil pump. Drove the Jeep 14 miles and check gauge light came on and oil pressure dropped to 0. Could be sending unit?

no jeep stated
must we guess cars then guess engines?

ever heard of a pressure gauge?
when i do major engine works
I do 2 things, (all majors engine builders too)
fuel pump relay pulled.
sparks plugs pulled.
remove sender. attach gauge,
crank with no fuel ,
i get spec high pressure, with fresh 10w-40 in the sum.
no engine stated no spec,. stated.
then with valve cover off i crank it to see if I GET
top end oiling.
if not? you did it wrong! correct it NOW not at 85mph. and win,,, seems some 0-rings or gaskets mission on pump or pickup
but the sensor wire falling off, is light off
but if that wire is bare and shorts to chassis
the lamp glows, but seem odd that,
in all cases , I assume pressure is 0
and prove otherwise.

What is causing misfiring?

working scan tool free,
wow that be hard nut to crack ,no>?
wow no engine stated, which one?> 4.0L or ? 4.7L
not 2.5l diesel; sure.

The car has EFI
and all modern EFI , diagnosis
needs a scan tool (not a useless code reader)
or autozonded same....
if you had that, we;d have facts
live data.
questions you can not answer
1: got DTCs.
2: WHAT IS LONG TERM FUEL TRIM BANK1 AND 2 IF BANK 2 EXISTS. near 0% or slammed in to +-30% rails.

3: DOES engine reach and hold 180F water temp, see ECT sensor it tells you that, scanned,
is the system holding closed loop status on both banks?

4: got pending dTC errors.
5: if you have p03xx errors P017x errors what are they and if true what is the freeze frame data.
and more.. but i stop here,

why not get car serviced at a nice ASE shop

No heat while driving down road have replaced thermostat and waterpump

wow 1,double posted, why do that.
wow 2, contradicts the first.
here is your other post
"Have heat when sitting still no heat driving down road replaced water pump an thermos state"
wow3, did this happen before removing parts?
or did this precipitate all actions.
or just doing tuneups and now fails.?
context is everything, and history.
wow 4, no engine of the 4 stated.
you left out HAVE HEAT, this time. why?

why not add to the first post
better yet, answer the questions?

here i ask 1 more time
1: have heat where, (cab heat, or is it engine heat missing or BOTH?)
2: what does the below meter do.? under all conditions, moving car and not. hot engine.????

see the red arrow for good heat,?
the gauge must start low, (at ambient air temps)
the rise to the (purchased) thermostat rating (unstated)
the hold there, parked and moving at any speed.
that is NORMAL>

x2 levels in actual rad.
x2 not burping all air out of system,
wrong stat
installed backwards or missing seal.
see the seal on my 3.7l (1 of 4 engines)
if missing or wrong sized or old and ratty,
can leak.even inside leaks.

I use my automatic manualy, how do i get it to go into 4 sooner so i get better petrol consumption

back off the gas pedal!
let it shift up sooner.
if the trans is TCM shifted, reprogram the TCM.
or make a liar box that lies to the TCM for speed.
(called a piggyback box in racing)
but then the speedo cluster lies.

or buy an MPG gauge
and learn how to drive again.
every car has a sweet stop , speed.
that gets max mpg.
every car made.
for many cars is 45mph. top gear, flat pavement.
driver not driving crazy.

most poster assume all cars are the same
or all years,or even all engines are the same.

Need to get dash off to get to speedomiter how do i do it

I actually just did this, All you do is lift the top part of the dash straight up. You can just hold it up and there are 4 screws that hold the gauge cluster together. Then the cluster just slides right out, no wires to worry about.
