How much should it cost to replace oil pressure sensor

How much should it...

How much should it cost to replace oil pressure sensor filter on 5.3L 2012 Silverado? Thanks

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is your oil pump? Has the check engine light come on?

6 yrs. never replaced. Yes, check engine light came on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Silverado yourself? What have you tried so far?

No. Taking to a shop and they pulled codes and diagnosed that it’s the oil pressure sensor with filter probably clogged

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

About 68,000 miles. And always changed oil on time

Okay, that oil pressure sensor is part number ACDELCO 12673134, and runs $36.79 plus tax. The labor to replace it is 3.0 hours because the intake manifold will need to be removed. Intake gasket set will be about $40.00. So at a labor rate of $135.00 per hour, figure the total estimate will be about $481.79 plus tax on the parts.
