Engine Light Just Came On

Does anyone have an explanation for this. The manual mention bad gas mileage or faulty Cat conv.

I got mine from Amazon because the auto parts stores have huge markup on theirs.

I use my tuner normally but I also have a AutoLink AL319

I'm far from an expert on mechanical stuff so I'll let other chime in on the codes but I did have a bad oil pressure sensor before and it showed 99 oil pressure. Check your in-car display and see what the oil pressure # is. Also, check the oil level and make sure you're not low on oil.

I just had my oil pressure sensor replaced due to P0520. So long as you have oil in the engine, you are ok to drive it until the sensor is replaced.

You will notice that the Jeep will feel sluggish, in that the VVT does not work without a functioning oil pressure sensor.

gotcha. My mgp went down from about 10 to 8.5. Was it a pricey repair?

You know, in the ghetto first time around we just clear the cel and see if it comes back. If it keeps coming back work on it.
