OH GREAT.. engine problems??

ok this may not even be engine related but here are the symptoms.. i was driving around town and i stopped for a red light... well it was idleing fine then it acted like it was going to die, the oil pressure guage dropped, the check engine light came on and i beleive another light came on as well, then the car seemed like it cought itself and went back to normal... this is now the 3rd time it has happened in the whole couple a weeks i have had it.. and it happens so quick.. its not throwing a code.. the CEL only comes on for a couple seconds tops... does anybody have any clue or suggestion for me to start checking...

If the CEL comes on even for a second it should be setting a code.But it sounds like maybe the EGR valve.If it is electrical as stated I would have the alternator tested.Normally if the ALT kicks out it will cause most or all of the lights in the dash to flash on.

You may be right I think they did do away with them in 89 on the wrangler.
