Hi) I own a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6-cylinder 4L 165,000 miles. The oil pressure gauge goes to 0 psi when I brake and back to 40 psi when I accelerate. Upon first turning on the engine the psi goes up to 40 psi then after 8 minutes or so it starts going down to 0 psi when stopping on a light. Sometimes when I go below 10 mph the vehicle stals the Rpm goes up the mph slowly goes up after 6 seconds to normal wanted speed. The miles ran odometer (165,000) is hard to read but functioning. Two days ago the Starter failed. I changed the oil filter, fuel filter, oil 10w30, the oil gauge switch located near the oil filter. The oil level is good. Are the issues related? Will replacing the the Instrument Gauge Cluster help with the gauge issue?What type of oil is recommended I live in LA? Is it electrical or oil pump or gasket problem? How much would labor cost roughly for each? Theres no unusual engine loud noices while driving. The fuel filter I rescently changed was really dirty. I would appreciate your expert opinion. Than you!
