oil pressure problem

ok, heres the deal. changed my oil and oil filter since my gauge was pegged out at 80. thought it might be clogged. now the gauge sits on 80 at idle and until i reach a speed of about 35 plus mph. you guys think its a faulty sensor? i know that the sensors are sensitive and will go bad if you bump it or something.

Pegged oil pressure is almost assuredly the oil pressure sending unit.

I buy mine from Jeep for best accuracy/reliability/mating with your factory gauge.

It will take longer than 10 minutes.

Search this forum for "crankshaft position sensor" and you will easily find a thread that has pics and the procedure.
