Oil pressure sending location? 4.2L
 
I eyeballed the motor for where the wiring for the oil pressure sender is...not seeing it and now my oil pressure gauge is pegged all the time.
I do not have a repair manual, but most of my stuff I can do no problem...any info appreciated!

OWNS:
06 Commander 4x4 3.7l
90 YJ Sahara 4.2/nuttered/108 Motorcraft 2100 w 47 jets (not quite sure if that's the best configuration yet)/soon to do the Team Rush upgrade but with my Super stock yellow coil/rhino lined/new fuel tank/pump/filter/starter/battery/coil/dizzy cap/rotor/timing at 11 btdc

Jeeps do not get stuck...the mud just hates to let them go! :punk:

if you look at the very back of the driver side of the valve cover at the fire wall
you will see the sender and the purple wire hooked to it.
if this connection is loose or dirty it will peg your gauge.

Nice! Thanks! Feel free to check out my other thread regarding the Carb!

On mine that's the temp sender. My oil pressure sender is near the distributor.

Passenger side almost at the firewall.

Thanks for the replies! Mine is a 90 YJ Sahara 4.2L so I did the wire at the driver's side and cleaned and re-seated but the gauge was still pegged, so I'll check the passenger side near Dizzy. Makes sense because shortly after I adjusted timing, the gauge was acting funny like a wire was loose. Can anyone post a pic?

Here ya go.. This is taken just after we purchased it.. Little on the "dirty" side. Anyway, left side of picture, has orange(ish) looking wire going to it. You can also see the curly oil line that goes from the sender to the gauge. FYI, mine is an aftermarket gauge however the sending unit should look similar.

sorry i was thinking temp sensor for some reason..lol

Ok. I unhooked an re attached that and still pegged. However, My wire looks to be centered on the terminal and yours looks offset, so perhaps I'm not actually making contact. I will redo it and advise. Thanks for the pic!
