Help! Jeep Ticking
Hey guys, haven't been here in a while...been busy and haven't been workin on or driving any jeeps for a while.
Anywhere here's the deal....I have a 92 Wrangler that I sold to my dad. It needs a hydraulic throwout bearing. It's been sitting for a little over a year. When I put it up everything was perfect, ran like a gem....except for the throwout bearing.
So I put a new battery in it last night, it started right up after a few cranks and I pulled it forward and shut it off. I noticed it ticked a little but it was mighty cold last night. SOO today I checked the oil and started it up....It's ticking pretty bad, the oil pressure guage reads 0 but I'm not sure if it ever worked or not, can't remember. I opened the oil fill cap with it running and peaked inside, I can see oil but it's not splashing around up there (not sure if that means anything or not) My dad wants to drive it home tonight.....what are your thoughts? Is it just from the cold and after the engine warms up it'll be ok? Or is the oil pump gone now too??j
