How high? And your oil pressure sending unit can be bad.


If you own a Renix Jeep, you'll want to check this out.

If it is pegging the gauge, then it is probably faulty. Doubt if your oil pressure is that high.The sending unit may be incorrect.
If you or the previous owner replaced the gauges from the set that had idiot lights, then you simply have the wrong sending unit.
Replace the sending unit first. It is located by the distributor cap.

I think I did replace it. Cause when I was reviving the truck I seen that it was broken all it is, is like a little screw on knob that has a single wire running to it right?

It's a real stretch, but if someone had switched your dash from the one with warning lights instead of gauges the sender could be wrong. The light are called idiot lights as a slang term.

Like I told you in another thread, take off and when you are to shift in 2nd, put it in 4th instead. Then gun it. If the engine revs and speed doesn't go up or barely goes up, then your clutch is slipping.

The clutch engages the transmission.
If it is slipping, then the power of the engine is not being applied to the transmission and therefore the wheels.
RPM's will go up, but speed will not.
