oil psi?
What should my oil presser be at? It was really high before but it went down a little its at maybe 2-3 o'clock position. I'm not sure off the top of my head.

My yj ran at about 50-55, idled at 35-40.
Sending units are notorious for being off...

For mine idol or stepping on the gas it doesn't make much difference. Moves just a tiny bit tho.

Replace the sending unit or take it out see if the orifice is clogged up..sometimes they can be cleaned.

I heard it was kinda a common thing for thoes to go. I'll pull it off at some point. I'll was looking at it before just to see where it was.

Some just replace it with a mechanical gauge....then you know what you have for sure.

I checked the gauge and it seems to be working Ok to me. Never know for sure until I look into it completely. Thanks for the help!

17-35 at idle 40-75 at higher RPM. The only bad oil pressure is ZERO!
