On that jeep theres a circit board on the back of the two or three gauges that are in the console together. that board goes out and makes the gauges ack crazy. but if you know for a fact that your engine is not losing oil pressure and that the oil sending unit is good i would first check the wires go to and from the gauge and sending unit if all is well and the board is not bad replace the gauge.

your pressure sending switch could be going bad id try replacing that first its easier and cheaper. make sure the oil level is not too high also.if all is good then the switch can be bad or the gauge itself.

I have an 02 wrangler and the oil preasure goes down when Idling is that an oil pump going bad?


First we would need to know when this occurs. Asuming the oil level is at the full mark!. If the pressure goes up during acceleration and down at idle when engine is fully warmed up, then this is normal. An engine requires 10 psi of oil pressure per 1,000 rpm ( ex. 20 psi at 2,000 rpm, 25 psi at 2,500 rpm, and so on ) . If the gauge is moving back and forth erratically at idle , i would say the gauge is bad. If it drops to 0 while accelerating I would say your oil pump is bad. If from time to time it seems to work and other times it seems not to work, I would say the oil pressure sending unit for the gauge is bad. If the pump failed you would start to here a Knocking noise from the engine in a short period of time. Use the above scenario's to narrow down what it may be.

Fuel an temperature gauge quit working


There is a voltage regulator for the instruments, usually located on the back of the instrument panel. This may be kaput or it may just have corroded/loose connections. I would check this first.

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 gauge goes crazy!


You had better check your dipstick and see if you have any oil showing on the stick? Sounds like your oil pump pickup is uncovering in a turn and cavitating which is caused by low oil quantity.
