I have a '01 Cherokee Sport and during the past couple of days I have noticed that if I turn the ignition off with the temp just above 210 degrees (after setting for awhile or with AC on and setting) and then re-start the ignition shortly thereafter, say within 5-15 minutes, I get a wobbly start and shaking of the engine. I have also noticed that when this happens my oil pressure needle sticks at 80 and never comes down, no variation it just seems like it is stuck. Once moving the engine quickly returns to 210 degrees or just a shade under, the engine shaking stops, all is normal except for the stuck oil pressure needle at 80. Now if I stop the engine and then re-start, the oil pressure guage goes back down to normal range. I havent gotten any error codes and Jeep runs normal when guage pegged at 80, any ideas what might be causing this?

wow, thats weird. i too have an 01' cherokee sport and pretty much have the opposite problem. my oil pressure would never move, causing me to have no oil, and my engine began knocking, and now i have to find a new engine. it sucks.
