The gasket is listed at $15.97. The labor time is 5.9 hours and add 0.4 with Air conditioning. So whatever the garage you use charges per hour.

Having replaced gaskets on an oil pan on a couple older vehicles 10 years ago.Why would it take 5.9 hours to undo 6 bolts or so, pull a pan and scrape the old gaget off and the sealent and pace the new gaket on and put the pan back on and add oil on this model. Could you provide me with a few more details so that I can understand why it would take that long?

      Installation Procedure

    5. Apply a 5 mm (0.197 inch) wide and 25 mm (1.0 inch) long bead of adhesive GM P/N 12346141 or equivalent to both the right and left sides of the engine front cover to engine block junction at the oil pan sealing surfaces.

    6. Apply a 5 mm (0.197 inch) wide and 25 mm (1.0 inch) long bead of adhesive GM P/N 12346141 or equivalent to both the right and left sides of the crankshaft rear oil seal housing to engine block junction at the oil pan sealing surfaces.
    7. Important: Always install a NEW oil pan gasket
    8. . The oil pan gasket and oil pan must be installed and the fasteners tightened while the adhesive is still wet to the touch.

      1. Install the NEW oil pan gasket into the groove in the oil pan.
      2. Important: The oil pan alignment must always be flush or forward no more than 0.3 mm (0.011 inch) from the rear face of the engine block.

        1. Install the oil pan onto the engine block. Press the oil pan gasket into the grooves of the engine front cover and crankshaft rear oil seal housing.
        2. Slide the oil pan back against a suitable straight edge.
        3. Install the oil pan bolts and nuts, but do not tighten.
        4. Measure the pan-to-transmission housing clearance using a feeler gauge and a straight edge. Use a feeler gauge to check the clearance between the oil pan-to-transmission housing measurement points. If the clearance exceeds 0.3 mm (0.011 inch) at any of the 3 oil pan-to-transmission housing measurement points (1), then repeat the step until the oil pan-to-transmission housing clearance is within the specification. The oil pan must always be forward of the rear face of the engine block.
