Thanks for the info Willy. Just outta curiosity, what part do you ask for when you order one of these assemblies? CPS? Oil pump drive assembly?

Jeez, if someone here is mechanically inclined, making a sturdy aftermarket assembly could prove to be financially rewarding! Anyone? Anyone?

'03's use a different assembly that doesn't seem to be suffering as high a failure rate as the '05/'06 models. If I were you I would just use a high quality oil with adequate ZDDP content and not worry about it. This is exactly what I'm doing with my '02 - I've never removed it and have no plans to since I run Valvoline VR1 in it.

My '06 is another matter...the original gear showed striation wear with 9,300 miles on it, and the replacement gear I got (the same part the dealers installed as part of the recall) is already showing signs of wear with just 4,000 miles on it. It's just as well that I've parked the Jeep for the winter - I'll figure out what to do about it next spring.

Below is a pic of the difference in the 02-04 shaft Top and the 05-06 shaft Bottom. I would love to get my hands on one of each to see everything that's different.

I asked for the Oil Pump Drive Assembly. The PN should help narrow it down also. The CPS, I suppose, is technically the electronic sensor.

Are you guys that are pulling the OPDA periodically to check it needing to replace the gasket when reinstalling it? Or is the gasket just needed for installing a new assembly?

When I pulled my original (65K miles) there was no damage. I pulled it twice with no problems.

When the new OPDA was installed it didn't have the gasket. It leaked a tiny bit. I drove with it off for a few days while waiting for the replacement to come in. I would think you only need to purchase one new gasket for the new OPDA. It can be reused if you are reasonably careful when removing and installing.

Gasket part number: J3181288 $1.87

Posted this in the registry post as well...
Has anyone been able to figure out what the difference is, if any, between Rev E and Rev B in the serial number of the OPDA? Also, did D/C update the assembly in late 2006 and is there actually anyone who is NOT having issues with their OPDA?

If I were to guess I would say manufacture date. I originally had a REV-B that failed. Now I'm working with a REV-E. They look identical. There are several high mileage 05-06 TJ's out there. I would be reluctant to say every one is bad. They are more prone to failure though.

Also, just to put it out there, the I6 calls for 6 qts of oil. A lot of places sell 5 qt deals and I don't know for certain what shops add.

If you do a search there was a thread a few weeks ago with many people without issue. Many had reasonably high mileage (80-100K) for a 05-06.

That is a great price I paid $ 167 for mine with no gasket.

was on another jeep forum and ask about this issue and not many on that site seemed to have this problem so not sure how big of issue it is.
