1989 4.0L no power /no oil pressure
i have a 1989 MJ with some major engine problems and i bought it knowing it needed a new engine, but i couldnt let this one go
its been sitting for 6 months
i drove her home with falling oil pressure only a few miles but it had really bad had power and acceleration so i parked it got some restore and dumped it in
after this it seem to get worst and, has no power now
i wondering if anyone has an idea whats wrong and what are my options to fix it?
my guess is that the oil pump started to fail for some reason and slowly starved the engine of oil,
previous owner says it was a bearing some place but he had no idea, and his mechanic quoted 1500 for a rebuild and he just wasnt up for it.
sounds pricey i found a shop that will swap in a reman with warranty for 1600
but i just wanna make double sure this engine is dead before i shell out any money
or explore the possibility's on fixing the current motor?
misfiring sounding/ choppy running
NO oil pressure!
i only went around 7 miles straight home like this and now she is sitting
im thinking about dropping the pan tomorrow to inspect the oil pump/ see if any metal parts are mashed up
any advise is greatly appreciated
