Must I remove a manifold to repair oil pressure sensor?

March 08, 2013

Q: I am getting my oil pressure sensor changed for my 2007 Chevy Avalanche. The mechanic also says they need to remove the intake manifold. Is this the case?

A: This is true information. The older body-style trucks did not have to have the manifold removed, but on the 2007 and newer Avalanches, the intake manifold does have to be removed to gain access to replace the sensor.

This is unfortunate, but there is no way around it.
