    i found another problem that was the same as mine and it was suggested that it might be the ecm? but why would it be losing oil pressure? it doesnt always try to stall out...

Can you tell me if you have problems starting the vehicle?

    the only reason your gages show low levels are because the engine is losing rpm. this could be because of a faulty sensor or a weak fuel pump if it wants to stall at red lights but drives ok otherwise then i would say that perhaps you have a obstructed fuel filter or a weak pump. change the fuel filter first and see if this corrects the problem.

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited oil pressure gauge is dropping to 0 when idling in gear. What is wrong and what do I have to do to ix it?


First check the oil level and top up as necessary. If the oil pressure is at 0 , then it would very quickly sieze the engine, that not being the case, it sounds like you need to replace the oil pressure switch/sensor, which will be mounted either on the engine block or on the oil filter housing. Hope this helps

possible bad oil level sensor. The shifting problem is most likely unrelated.

My two thousand jeep starsts then shuts off engine light comes on check gages what are the gages


You probably recently had a new key made, and the Jeep ignition is chipped. The key has a sensor, and must be programmed to match the ignition. Some will start till you put it in gear, then it shuts off.

I have a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee (4 L) with 225,000 miles. When idling and engine hot, oil pressure guage drops to zero. Any way to tell if it is the pressure sensing unit or not?


ook up a external pressure guage where the sending unit is you will know forsure. with the milage i would guess that the oil pump may be the prblem or to much clearance in yhe bearing.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Died while driving home


check the fuel pump fuse/relay, could be just bad enough to cause an intermittent start/no start. and check fuel pressure,spark and the crank position sensor.

No/low oil pressure, high engine temp


I think you have a bad ground on your engine gages...but, more importantly, have your oil pressure checked by a mechanic.  If it is indeed only 20 pounds the engine is sadly on it's last legs.
When you receive advice from this website you have to understand that without the item in front of us, we are only able to provide "a best guess" as to what the problem might be based on you description of the defect.  If you haven't described a clear and precise description of the defect you decrease the chances of an accurate reply.  Thank you.

Low oil pressure


the first i would do is to see if the oil sending unit is ok and if you gage is working right and if they are then checkout the oil pump.

Oil pressure gage


At idle, at operating temp is there any ticking from top end of engine? Are there any knocking noises brom bottom end?
If no noises, change oil and add some Marvel oil to clean out galleys. If that dosent work, change oil pressure sendingf unit. Also, if you have a mechanical oil pressure gauge, hook it up and take a direct reading. Oil pressure (in any vehicle) at idle should NEVER be less than 15psi. Generally in 4.0 jeep engines it's never less than 30, with a high reading at driving rpm of about 40-60! (but, you did not mention what engine you have)
