SOURCE: 2004 Grand Cherokee: oil pressure fluctuates

if you know for certain that the sending unit is correct and the guage is accurate, then yiu may have big problems.....while the engine is running open the oil filler hole.. is everything wet with oil? or does it look dry or just a little lubed? you can allways install an aftermarket oil pressure guage(crappy tire) if you get the same results with that then you may have a week oil pump....worst case scenerio... need an engine rebuild as the moter may have wear issues.does the pressure slowly drop as the motor warms up? at idle ? does it jump up when you step on the gas?

problem one is the timer control for the heaters ,also check the heaters that they are working ,oil problem ? look under the rubber boot that goes over the oil switch ,pull it back and if oil under the cover renew the oil switch,these motors do suffer from heater light flashing on and i know people have spent megabucks trying to cure it ,its a fault with dash and printed circuits ,but the heaters are not coming on i know because i have driven one with the heater circuit light coming on and i had a extended light on a long wire and the heaters are not coming on ,ignore it just renew the faulty glow plugs,as for EGR valve just pull teh vacumn pipe off the ERG valve and leave disconnect ,more hassle than its worth changing it ,you could end up with a ECU computer .Still a nice reliable motor though and economical

My 20kW Kohler home generator (nat gas) cranks but won't start. Definitely getting fuel. Everything checked in October with new spark plug. Maybe a setting?


Did you check the oil level? Some generators have a oil sensor that will now allow it to start if the oil level is too low.

Have generator showing emergency stop code and will not start.


there are too emergency stop sensors on generators
one is over load
the other is low oil level in the sump (Low oil pressure)
That sensor is known to trigger and activate the emergency stop so check it out after you check the oil level in the sump

2007 Cadillac srx oil pressure alarm, light going off, why?


If oil level is correct, you could install a mechanical oil pressure gauge to insure you actually have good oil presure. If all is well, change oil pressure sender unit.

We just installed the Kohler 20RESAL in a open air enclosure behind my clients house and when it's running it's incredibly loud. You certainly can't talk to anyone if you are standing next to it and the...


No be careful !!! the muffler is designed to give a certain engine back pressure and emissions. Changing this or piping it out can increase back pressure to dangerous levels. If you build an enclosure make sure the air flow in and out is sufficient and the hot air out does not get sucked back in as cooling air (short cycle) engine damage and fire can result !

I have a Saab 93 2002 Turbo 2lt with a low oil pressure warning alarm coming on. The oil level is correct and I have also replaced oil and filter. The warning light now comes on after 60km, but vanishes if...


the first thing to do is to have the oil pressure read using a mechanical gauge
that ensures that you know that the engine is running with the right oil pressure
you can test the ECM operation by using a substitute ECM that is a known good unit
run the fault codes to see in the oil pressure sensor is a problem
At this point , test the oil pressure as suggested then change the oil pressure sensor

Low oil light and alarm on at stop or slow speed


you need a mechanical .guage to connect to your engine to tell for sure if it is a real problem. but most cases a new sending unit for the oil will fix the issue. I don't know on your exact model but a sending unit is normally cheap to replace.easy to change. and normally close to oil filter. if it doesn't fix it have a mechanic check your actual oil pressure.

Kohler exercise causes engine spikes and gasping for fuel.


On exercise it isn't under load, you may have too much gas pressure, have the gas pressure and fuel/air ratio checked on the mixer

Starts, runs a few seconds then shuts down. Will restart immediately, but then shuts down again. 32.5 KW, White diesel eng.


Check for a low lube oil sensor problem first. Could be low oil pressure or a failed sensor. The sensor is timed and if pressure doesn't come up, then unit is shutdown.

Check fuel filter and also air leaks in the fuel supply lines.

Check if the fuel shutoff solenoid is responsible for the shutdown. If it closes just before the engine quits, then it is being commanded to shutdown, probably as a safety interlock.
