Thanks for the input. Just got a quote from the dealership. $950 just for the labor. Seems ridiculously high. Can I just replace the pump drive, or do I need to replace the entire assembly?

$950?! That is insane! I can remove, inspect, modify and replace an OPDA in about 45 minutes. You really need to check out the linked thread, get a new OPDA and StripperGuy retrofit kit and DIY or have someone reasonable mod and swap it for you. I can do the retrofit for you, and anyone with a 1/2" box wrench and the ability to read can do the install.

Ditto on the rape. Call the police. Take names and get a lawyer.

How is your mechanical skills?

Replacing the unit is pretty simple and straight forward.
You can get someone on this forum to modify your unit for you if you ask nice. Get on the other thread with this issue. Look for "2005-06 Jeep OPDA_CPS_Distributor Failure" look at the first page real close. If you pull yours make darn sure you line those holes up before you loosen a bolt. The bottom of the first page has videos and pictures which explain all. If you have the ability to change a tire and have some simple tools replacing the OPDA is simple. You can PM many of us and we can walk you through it.

I would wager the $950.00 price tag included replacing the camshaft as well. If it didn't I'd stay away from that shop.

I'll opt to do it myself. I have tools and a garage and as long as I have instructions I shouldn't have any issues. Guess when I get home I'll mark everything, pull it out and see just how bad it is. Any an all help is greatly appreciated!!

I would not mark it. Look at the clocking video on page 1.

I pull the cap and do short clicks with the ignition to get the TDC/pin holes lined up. Or you can turn the crank by hand to get there, too.

I'm assuming this is what's going on with my buddy's jeep.

Trying to help out my buddy that hurt his jeep a few days ago. He went up the cliff that only he can make up 3x, in the video below when he made it to the top and was at 3,500 RPM with his 5 speed. Turned off the jeep and then went to turn it back on and it had a clicking sound in the block check gauges light was on and check engine. 3 camshaft codes came up and also the oil pressure wasn't moving at all. I know the piston is slapping the valves, we went down 5 miles and the jeep shut off and the clicking was getting louder. We pulled the oil cap and smoke was coming out more then it should. Before I rip into his jeep I'm hoping you guys would know what's happening so I can get it up and running sooner. We are shipping out to afghanistan soon and any info would be great. 05 jeep unlimited with a 5 speed.

Probably broke the OPDA gear which drives the oil pump. Not good.

On the '05 and '06s, the oil pressure gauge is just a glorified idiot light. There is a pressure switch that closes at around 6 psi, at which point the computer moves the pressure gauge to mid-scale.

At less than 6 psi, the computer moves the gauge to the low end and turns on the check gauges light.

Is there a factory latter for the E05 recall? The jeep's manufacture date 11/2004.

There wasn't a recall. It was a technical service bulletin
