You didn't have a chance to change out the oil filter adapter correct? I'd put bets on the broken oil pressure sender.

Gasket is ~$3 and it looks like that'* the issue.

This pic makes it look like the body of the oil pressure sender is missing.

There is an oil level sensor.. I think it only works after you are in the boom area of low oil.

One thing that hadn't been mentioned was that when tightening the power steering pump onto TJ'* new motor (from his other 95) the oil pressure sender snapped due to a difference in the two PS pumps.

No dealerships were open with the gasket at that time.

Being that the sender snapped only the plastic part of the sensor.it didn't appear to be a threatening condition and it did not leak upon startup or the running that day. There seems to be a difference in the oil filter adapter depending on which pump was put into the vehicle.

put some oil in it, crawled underneath.... Defenitly the oil sender unit. So going to the dealer tomorrow to get the gasket and stopping by the garage to snag the oil adapter off the other motor and switching them over. It had me scared lol, but i am happy it is only that, since i had to switch it anyways. How hard is that, just those 4 bolts? Should be able to do it fromt he wheelwell correct?

do you really want me to...



the oil adapters are the same...... i figured that out after i took the adpater off the motor and compared them..... the same.. the problem was the plug in for the power steering pump was twisted about 90 degrees. I twisted it away (towards the back of the car). Put the adapter back on, OP sensor in, and everything fit nice.

It was a good experience though
