it could be as simple as a bad oil pressure, or it could be a bad engine. If the oil pressure was good before the oil change maybe the oil filter might be the problem

Very first thing you need to do is install a mechanical pressure gauge on there to verify what you see on your gauge. If the actual pressure is low, then it's time to start looking inside the engine. If not, then you need to trace out the electrical problem but will know the engine is safe.

Oil guage drops then goes to high range


sounds like your sending unit needs to be replaced cheap fix and if your oil pump losses all its pressure you will begin to hear knocking coming from your motor from the top under the heads.

My 2000 Blazer started making a tapping/ ticking noise after i had the oil changed and service ata jiffy lube. it idles with normal sound, but when i accel whike driving it gets more noticable and louder....


time to add some oil

they likely used 10/30

add a litre of 80w90 it will thicken the curent oil and should stop the noise

it is likely you will need thiswith all your future oil changes high nilage motors make noise and require thicker lubrication

Oil Pressure Always Runs High - 2002 Grand Jeep Cherokee


If your oil pressure is running in the red this would indicate too much oil in the system. You should have your oil changed and refilled soon or you run the risk of burning out the oil pump. At idle your pressure should be just over a quarter of what your gauge has. At highway speed it should not exceed 3/4 of the gauge unless your going in excess of 100 MPH. Change the oil and filter and your vehicle should be fine.

Sudden change in oil pressure gauge


DIAL IN CAB COULD BE AT FAULT, NEED TO GET ANOTHER DAIL GUAGE AND CONNECT TO SENDER, IF SAME COULD BE SENDER, IF STILL THE SAME, PRESSURE VALVE IN BLOCK STICKING DUE TO DIRT OR U/S, OR AT WORSE !!! ENGINE WORN, THIS WILL BE CONSTANT IN MOST CASES, FAULT IN GUAGES ARE NORM INTERMITANT.

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.

Flashig oil light


You either have a loose/worn engine bearing or a worn out oil pump, do not drive the car this way, you will cause serious damage to the whole engine. A oil switch is for a light, it turns on the light when oil pressure falls below about 10 PSI, a sending unit is for a guage that shows oil pressure with a scale, it may have numbers on the guage or just green and red, or high and low.
