Dave – Thanks for this helpful Video! Using your guidance, I just finished doing this on my wife's 2013 Tahoe 5.3L. (Gauge pegged at 80PSI, PO582 code) Unfortunately, the grey clip on the electrical connector was inaccessible. I used my Dremmel to enlarge the hole on the heat/sound shield an additional inch or so. Made it much easier to access the clip and to see what I was doing. I can't stress enough that when tightening the new sensor, to only tighten another 1/8 to 1/4 turn once the aluminum crush gasket makes contact with the manifold. I went too far on my first try and sheared the top of the sensor off. Fortunately, was able to get the threaded part out with a #3 screw extractor. Another $50 sensor and all fixed. Still much better than paying a garage to do this. Thanks again!

Very helpful. It was Definately a tight space but after changing the sensor, the pressure went up to 40. Thanks

Definitely helps me with my friends truck; much different from the old school Chevy's I usually work on. Thank you sir 🙂
Edit: No need to remove the fuel line or vapor return line; only remove the hose off the vacuum assist. I know, I just did exactly that. Thanks again for locating the part for me. Cheers 🙂

I replaced mine but it keeps dropping. Dose anybody know what it could be?

Steve Sneed says:

Getting ready to change mine. Had it checked as bad. haven't had the chance yet to do it. When checked didn't work at all, now works intermittent all over the dial then stops again only when it stops I'm assuming has sent a signal to the computer that I have no oil pressure because the oil can flashes after it does it .2012 Suburban 5.3L. Anyone else have this issue? Thanks for a great how to!
