1994 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 189, xx miles
My son could probably explain this more clearer but I am going to try my best. While driving to my designation I had glanced down at my dash. I noticed the oil gauge needle was darn close to high. I never saw this before. Nor did my check engine light come on but for a bit then went off though needle stayed towards high. Had to get back home, checked fluids after leaving designation and all was good. At one time and only one time I hit a bump and needle bounced back towards left but then back to high. When getting home, I finally got a hold of son and he told me not to drive, was thinking it might be a oil pump. Today he mentioned something about problem being possibly sending unit cuz of how I said needle jumped. Could he be right? What could be the problem? Whatever it is, will it be costly. Curious, where is the oil pump and the oil pressure sending unit on this auto of mine. Hope to hear from you very soon!
