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?

Depends on the oil temp, bearing clearances, brand and weight.
Temperature is at 220 degrees and pressure is at 96.

96 sounds extremely high. I'd go with what Viking said, just get the sensor replaced.

Good morning. Was wondering the dealer has two parts related. An oil pressure switch and an oil temperature sensor. My gut is telling me I have to replace the switch.

Also is it a hard part to change? Do we know where it's located. Thanks fellas.
