You need an oil pressure tester or just an aftermarket oil pressure guage with the right adapter find the oil pressure switch unscrew the switch and screw in the right adapter.Hook it to the guage with the hose in the kit start it and watch the guage.

Remove the oil pressure switch. It is typically located near the oil filter. Install the appropriate fitting from the oil pressure gauge kit. Install the gauge. Start the vehicle.

SOURCE: when first starting the 2000 jeep grand cherokee

When the pressure reads low, are you hearing any knocking or tapping noises from the engine? If so, you may have worn engine bearings. I'd check the actual pressure by having a mechanical gauge installed on it in order to determine the actual pressure (your gauge is electro-mechanical and not quite as accurate) If pressure is actually that low the oil pan must be removed and bearings, oil screen etc need to be checked.
The reason pressure is always higher at first is that when cold the oil itself is thicker...as it gets hot and thins out pressure will drop somewhat, but should not go that low. Only other thing that can affect pressure in that way would be either a bad sending unit (you will know that after testing) or gasoline contamination in oil (happens if an injector is not working properly)
Good luck with it!

SOURCE: oil pressure guage pegs out when I accelerate--WHY

Check wiring to sensor on motor clean or replace.If that is OK.then consider: older high mileage cars will start to ware their bearing and causing more back pressure under load, you may have to live with it. Unless you what to rebuild motor.

SOURCE: oil pressure is stating low and check guage on

I would suggest checking with a manuel gauge. The sending unit may be bad.

Oil pressure low stop engine and check guage


Fist check oil level, the sensor is a pressure switch worked by oil pressure, hopefully the sensor has gone faulty. The oil pressure needs checking, if the oil pump or relief valve has gone faulty, the engine is being starved of lubrication and is causing internal damage. It is advisable NOT to run the engine till the pressure has been checked. (hope it's the sensor)

Oil guage falls when you come to a complete stop while still in drive?


It is normal for oil pressure to lower when engine is idling, but if it drops too much, it could be a worn pump. To check, have a shop hook up a mechanical oil pressure gauge and get the true oil pressure. Manufacturers often have a minimum pressure spec at idle and then at a higher rpm, also. Have your pressure checked against the manufacturer's specifications.

How to you check to see if the oil pressure guage is bad or if there's a pressure problem itself?


Connect test leads to the guage and apply 12 volts, if the guage activates upward this works, if it's the oil preaaure in regards to the oil pump, you need to hook up a oil pressure guage.
