Hello everybody, I just bought a used jeep for the first time, for my wife actually, and am new to jeeps in general. Its a 6cyl 2000 jeep sahara, with about 108k miles. The problem i'm having is that the oil pressure drops really low, to almost 0 when I idle, then goes up to about 30-40 when driving.
I've read through the forums and see that this appears to be common and a lot of people say that it could be the sender unit, oil filter, oil pan needs to be cleaned or the factory gauge, or a combination of these things (these are the main quick easy fix's i saw).
Just wondering if these fix's are indeed the best to start with and which one I should probably do first. Also, what is probably the best oil to go with and best oil filter to use for a high mileage jeep engine?
And for the stall problem, what is an average idle rpm for this jeep? It idles really low, below 1k at times. Is an idle adjustment cheap and easy or is this a symptom of something else.
