The oil that came out of the sending unit may had got into the starter causing it to burn out and now has a dead short in it

Oil light keeps coming on put oil in it but it runs hot


OIL SENDING UNIT(A SENSOR TYPE SWITCH LOCATED ON ENGINE) MAY NEED REPLACED ASAP FOR OIL LIGHT STAYING ON. IF YOU PUT TOO MUCH OIL IN IT WILL OVERHEAT DUE TO VALVES BEING DROWNED BY EXCESSIVE OIL-CHECK TAILPIPE FOR WET OIL RESIDUE. WILL LOSE POWER ON ACCELERATION.

1996 jeep grand cherokee oil pressure gauge flutters car wont run


If the oil pressure is not above 5 or 10psi, the fuel pump will not get power. The engine should start and die.
The pressure sending unit may be faulty, or the engine oil pressure may be very low.

1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport hard to start after its warm and fluctuating oil pressure


Hi there:
It sounds like it could be oil pressure sending unit. I would check the connection on the sending unit. Below are the procedures for checking the sending unit, If it checks out good I would have a mechanical gauge set up to measure the pressure.

TESTINGTo test the normally closed oil lamp circuit, disengage the locking connector and measure the resistance between the switch terminal (terminal for the wire to the warning lamp) and the metal housing. The ohmmeter should read 0 ohms.To test the sending unit, measure the resistance between the sending unit terminal and the metal housing. The ohmmeter should read an open circuit (infinite resistance).Start the engine.Once again, test each terminal against the metal housing:The oil switch terminal-to-housing circuit should read an open circuit if there is oil pressure present.The sending unit-to-housing circuit should read between 15-80 ohms, depending on the engine speed, oil temperature and oil viscosity.To test the oil pressure sender only, rev the engine and watch the ohms reading, which should fluctuate slightly (within the range of 15-80 ohms) as rpm increases.If the above results were not obtained, replace the sending unit/switch with a new one.

Hope helps.

95 jeep grand charokee laredo hard to start,


Check your spark plug, wires, distributor cap and finger. If you spark plugs older than 15000ml, replace them. To check your spark plug wires, use a tester (U can buy at any auto store) you hold direct on the wire and a small sparkling will show you if the wire works or not. You can check the wires also with this: use a single spark plug (don't remove one out your engine!), remove the wire from first SP, connect it with the single SP, hold it to ground, let someone start your engine...you need to see regular sparks.. do this step by step with all 6 wires. If all wires are fine, check the SP's, If you miss on one wire, replace the wire, if you miss on more than one, chekc the distributor cap and finger. If this items are older than 20000ml or 5 years, replace them.

Oil turning black after 800 km. on 2000 in-line 6 Jeep Charokee


if your jeep is a diesel it is normal for the oil to turn black, if the jeep is a petrol, then that is not normal, try using engine flush before a oil change, and make sure that you change the oil filter while the sump plug is off, this will make sure that all the oil is drained, the oil filter does have about .75 liters of oil.
