Mechanics

I JUST BOUGHT A 96 LOREDO AFTER SITTING FOR A FEW YEARS. IT RUNS AND DRIVES BUT WHY DOES THE OIL PUMP LOSE PRESSURE?

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Oil pressure comes up but only for a few seconds and then drops to zero. I added a can of seafoam because that's what was recomended by everyone that I asked about it. Even the parts store guy. Still same thing over and over.

Chemicals aren't going to fix a mechanical problem. The first thing is to have the actual oil pressure tested with a mechanical gauge. If it is normal, suspect the sending unit.
