Just got the Oil Pressure Sensor failure P0520. 200 Miles out of warranty!!

Any ideas if a dealer would warranty this? We have 36,290mi on our 2014 JK.

My fricken luck...unreal.

Anybody have experience this close to the bumper-to-bumper warranty? If you think I am SOL, is the vehicle still OK to drive for a few weeks til I can tackle the job? I am capable, but I have to fix a bad axle on my other car I am working on right now.

Most dealerships can do what they call a "goodwill" warranty repair that the factory will pay for. I would check around and see what service dept have the best customer service and go to them and see if they can goodwill warranty for you. If not then call Jeep warranty dept and see if they could authorize a warranty repair for you. Just remember the fewer the miles over 36k the better the chances of them being able to warranty it for you. Good luck :cheers

I drove mine for 6 months or more with the P0520 code.
It is a well known problem with the oil sensor that is located under the intake manifold.
I think it's a 4.7 hour warranty item, you'll want to let them do it under warranty.
They need to pull the manifold...
Do an online search and you'll find info on it every where.
I printed the Service Bulletin and took it with me when I had mine done.

I think there is a thread on here about it with a link to the Bulletin also..
Good Luck, Don't wait get it in ASAP with your mileage.

Got the code on Saturday

I got the code after trying to use my remote start and got a fail message. Went into dealership and luckily it was still under warranty. I asked what the issue was and if it would happen again and they said they modified the switch. I also asked about why my eco light wouldn't go on and my cruise control was acting funny and he told me that because that code was thrown that the engine goes into a safe mode so that there wont be any other issues with the blown switch. So I wouldn't wait to get it checked and replaced. Also on the warranty issue, because there is a SB on that part you could argue that in some cases its a recall and get them to replace it under the rules of a recall of course I would think you would need to raise enough hell that they finally cave. Good luck!

I am definitely capable of doing the repair myself so to save $400 if the dealer wont honor it, so I am glad its not going to damage the car if I need to do it myself in a few weeks.

Looks like I have to do up to step #50 right?

Doesn't seem too hard, just tedious on first glance. Hopefully the dealer will honor it and I won't have to "add" this to my "honey do" list

My dealership did honor it, about same mileage, a bit older than yours.
I read repairing it yourself is too big of the trouble.

Be real personable. Go in like an attack wife and expect to be rejected. But yes, you should have no trouble with warranty if yer a nice guy/girl.

If you get rejected a bit of disbelief always helps plus. "Can I please speak to the manager".

Does anybody have the part # for the oil pressure sensor? No luck at dealer.

Book time says its only 1.75hrs so idk why I keep hearing 4-6hr job...Maybe if you've never done any work on a car before...

So anybody have the part # so I can see if I can find it online? Or verify at dealer the correct one.

This is such a common failure it should have been a recall.

Call Chrysler Corporate and state your case, odds are they'll goodwill it. If they don't then do the job yourself. If you do it yourself, give us a write up on how it went for you. Good luck!

Went down today and they agreed to do a goodwill repair for $25 deductible. They said no over the phone, but in person they had no problems doing it.

It's great that they're doing a goodwill repair. Sometimes when there's a TSB for an issue, which there is in this case (18-034-14 REV. A GROUP: DATE: July 15, 2014), it makes it easier for a dealer to do what they should do anyway.

My 2013 JKR has the P0250 code and check engine light is on. I have 66K miles. Code was thrown once before I changed the oil and the check engine light went off. stayed off several months until recently on a very cold day I started the jeep to move it and threw the code. I have called Chrysler 800.992.1997 customer service line and ask for relief from the $457 repair estimate from my purchasing dealer Gastonia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.

It is crazy to put these sensors where you can't easily get to them for replacement. Poor engineering. This is a $35 dollar part and they quoted 2.5 hours for the repair. The TSB 18-034-14 shows 1.7 hours. However, Chrysler customer service says my vin is not included. Their reply to my inquiry is below. I am waiting on a quote from another dealer to see if they are the same. However, I plan to trailer the Jeep in and drop it off tomorrow for repair on Thursday at Gastonia. I will just keep the Vaseline handy!

"hi Mr. Holbrook this is Vickie we just spoke on the phone and just to let you know this service bulletin is not on your vehicle I called over to a couple dealers and they advised me that no this bulletin is not on your vehicle but if you feel that it is take it in to dealer and have it checked out and the cost would be an out of pocket expense due to the fact you are out of basic warranty if you have any more question please fell free and give us a call back at 1-800-992-1997 thank you and have a great week vickie"

Same thing happened to my 2014 1000 miles out of warranty. Dealer wanted almost 700 to do it.
I called Chrysler to get it approved for a goodwill repair. The rep was spending 3 days in between phone calls to me and the dealer.

So, I ordered the 40 dollar sensor, a cheap sensor socket and did it myself. Took a few hours, but wasn't that bad. I had to grind the socket down to fit into the absolute worst spot ever for a sensor. No problems since then. Lol the Chrysler rep finally called back 2 weeks after the incident and said he had approved it.
I didn't feel good driving around with the oil pressure full blast for that long, I'm gad I did it myself.

If anyone needs a pre ground socket for self repair let me know ill send it out to you for you send it back when you're done

Is this problem limited to a certain year range, or all 3.6 JKs?

P0250 repaired

I got a quote from another nearby dealer and they quoted my $342 to do the repair. However, I did not get this one until I had dropped the Jeep off at my purchasing dealer for the repair. They called at 10 this morning and told me that I was correct on what the problem was and including cleaning the fuel injectors they want $787. I immediately said no to the fuel injection cleaning so then the bill would be $635. I said your folks quoted $457 your competitor quoted $342. He says they did not include the hour long oil pressure check. I have attached pictures of the bill. I feel like I was screwed. Even though I got the bill lowered. The breakdown:
Labor $391
6 gaskets 23.94 3.99 ea. Left
6 gaskets. 23.94 3.99 ea right
Switch 39.85
Total parts $87.73
Doc storage $2
Shop supplies/enviro fees $39.10
Tax $35.10

Total $554.93 includes a two year warranty on parts and labor

Did it myself as well after the $400+ estimate from the stealer. Barely got the sensor out with a crescent wrench. Thank God it was npt threads and not that tight, lol.

As far as I know - this problem affects all 3.6 Pentastar engines, not only jeeps.

I just had this one on my '14 jeep at 20k miles. Luckily I was under warranty. As it turns out there was oil leaking near the sensor so they fixed that as well.

It sounds like I am lucky that mine went out as early as it did. Dealers pretty much exist to screw you over, they make 4X the amount on service that they do on sales. The whole back and forth just pisses me off. That and Chrysler and other manufacturers don't always even honor their warranty during the warranty period. My right rear spring is sagging terribly and they just straight up refused to replace it despite the 36k bumper to bumper warranty.

That's why my vehicles from here on out are going to all be Teslas (well except for my next wrangler in '18 lol).
