I dont know the part number...but ill look at home at the box I got and get back.
I walked to the parts and told them I needed the oil pump drive assembly. He plugged that in to his computer and gave me a print out of what it was. It is the whole assembly like as pictured in this thread. Keyed end for the oil pump, gear, shaft, and top housing of sensor and disk. I paid less than 180 total.

I asked about this being a common problem and he looked up my Jeep specifically in the computer and printed out the TSB about how MINE was actually changed at the dealership before it was ever sold due to NOT a recall but rather a customer satisfaction service recommendation from Chrysler. I told him its a little crazy it went bad AGAIN after a new one to solve the problem in 05 and he agreed...gave me numbers for Chrysler to call, and gave me all the paperwork he had on it.

Wow. Sounds like you had a semi-helpful dealer. Mine pretended like it was something new.

Part number is PN 53010624AC. It will be printed on the sticker of the unit.

I found a website, dodge-wholesale.com.

I haven't bought a spare replacement yet, but this looks like a good place.

Below is my correspondence.

PN 53010624AC. Oil Pump Drive Assembly

Is this the complete assembly including the gear and shaft?
Is this unit for the 2005-2006 Jeep Wrangler?
Are they new or refurbished?
Do you have an image so I can confirm it's the right part?

Hello

Yes this is the gear and shaft for 2005 Wrangler, they are new oem parts. Item # 28 in below diagram.

Thank You

The pic below looks like the OPDA for 2004. They made a change for 2005-2006 models.

If it isn't right, what is your return policy?
Where does it ship from?

If it is not the correct one we will take it back as long as its unused. It ships from Tampa FL.

What's up board! New LJ guy here. Just bought an 06 Rubicon with 35k and now freaked by this thread. Jeep runs perfect but want to get right on this B4 major problems surface so I'll be checking it this weekend. After reading through the first 20 pages and the last few pages of this post, I have a few quick questions. If they have been covered, please forgive me b/c I wasn't able to find my answers.

1. Why would you go to the dealer and buy the same CPS/OPDA? The new one will probably wear out as well if it's the same junk as the original part, no?

2. What is the dealers part number on the assembly?

3. What is the part number for the gasket that you should be replacing at the base of the assembly?

Thanks for any answers you guys can provide. Feels good to own some American junk again.

1. What other choice is there? Replacing and modding are the only alternatives I know.

2. PN 53010624AC. It should be on the sticker on the OPDA.



3. Below is an image of the gasket package.

Yeah it is.

Also I ordered the OPDA from dodge-wholesale.com. Hopefully it's the right part. $110 shipped isn't bad. Now I'll have one to modify once FOG uploads some pics.

Thanks for the quick replies. So I guess D/C never replaced the gear with an updated and more durable one? I gather that this assembly will have to be checked say every 10k miles and if there is more wear, order another $130 assembly? Kinda Shi**y if you ask me but thats why these clowns needed a bail out. Anyone know if a durable aftermarket is in the works or currently on the market for sale?

I don't know of an upgrade. There was a supply issue earlier this summer, but I've had no problem securing a replacement.

I would recommend checking it semi-annually. It looks like a high ZDDP oil will help and if you can somehow modify the existing shaft with an oil groove or with a zerk in the upper bushing, that might buy some time.

Overall, though initially freaked out, I've come to accept it. My first OPDA lasted 5 years. That said, I did catch it in time before any substantial failure.

I was just wondering if anyone has contacted LDI Inc? Might be interesting to see how long they think their part should last. Assuming they are the manufacturers from that part number sticker in the pic?
