Great way, not “weird”
He must have been a “Ken” and just knew he was right!
You proved him right with the correct fix along the way! Ugh. Idiots!

You give us a voice in a weird way. lol
If they know ALL, they pay ALL! Time is money fo sho! Lol. They might listen afterwards? Fingers Xd.
Àdd a comment…
Some of us have just worked on our own cars and motorcycles for 50 years and don't have the benefit of a $10,000 diagnostic computer or a few grand to pay a mechanic. We do what we can. And speaking for myself, I've managed to keep everything of mine running with an OBDC 2 reader (or a paper clip), Google, a multimeter and some hand tools. When my late model car bites the dust, I'm sticking to my 94 Harley with an Evo motor. New cars are shit.
100% behind you Ray – you do it the way you gotta do it. Your way is the safe way, for you and the customer.
Another THANK YOU GOVERNMENT FOR GETTING INVOLVED. Nothing like an old school mussel car.
Thank you for letting us watch
What ho? The Merry oh merry happenstance we will see.
Do you really have assholes go look up the torque just to dog you in the comment section?
Love the Easy E in the background! Then the Butter Flys…
Your company should refuse customer parts and working without diagnosis. In my trade of HVAC customers are almost always wrong. Saves time to ignore them. Your trade is 3x worse I bet.
If Google said so, it must be right. Google is AES certified.
If theres no oil pressure, you should not be driving it at all; poor main/connecting rod bearings
I didnt take off the intake
I used swivel extensions and my hands as eyes to get the bolt i was done in 20 minutes
I would have installed an aftermarket oil gage, way lot simple, and cheaper
The first mistake is Never buying electrical parts from Carquest or Advance auto parts. they have cost me nightmares with bad new parts….
Working on stuff like that how many times a day do you say something like, piece of crap? They could do better than that. I still prefer a 1964 something.
Is that an OSHA approved stepstool?
Dear ole Dr Google 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
Ok i gotta chime in on this one. That sender can easily be replaced without removing the intake. Ive changed several incuding the screen as well without removing any of that. Takes about 30 minutes. Job still pays the alotted time per the books. By the time you finish intake disassembly, id be on to the next vehicle.
There are front counter people there that direct your work; perhaps they should establish a policy requiring a shop technical agreement with outside problem resolutions before attempting the repair. That would help keep customers from paying for mistakes. Part of any repair business is paying for the technician's experiences and knowledge.
I just love the GM engineering. From a 100s of places that you can install a sending unit,this has to be one. Morons.
To replace a sensor in common place would take less then 10 min,but this will turn in to a $500 bill just a labor time. Genius.
Work smarter not harder, just because the book says it should take 2+ hours doesn't mean you have to take that long. i work on boats, half the shits by feel and or im upside down lol
No new intake gasket/o rings?
And that crappy music needs to go. Quiet is a good thing.
Another stupid ass design from engineers that have never worked on anything…EVER!
When I did my 07 4.8l I looked quite a while to find out if I needed the screen filter. From what I can tell the screen filters are only in the 5.3l and the 5.7l. I didn’t pull the intake but as much as a pain in the butt is was, I should have.
Is anyone else going going do do do do do when you hear the phone or is it just me
Crazy how some shops do more then they have to and charge all that money just to change sending unit.
At least wash your car, clean your interior and pressure wash your engine, and the techs will you as a prince/princess.
How much is diagnosis, $200-$300?
As another commentor commented, the oil pressure gauge was working and the engine light was off on the way out of the shop.
Just to be the barer of bad or good news honestly the intake manifold does not have to be removed to access the oil sending unit and this is coming from a chevy silverado owner
Codes have to be cleared for guage to operate
What's that annoying noise in the back ground?
No need for intake manifold gasket though?
well OIL be stumped, what now Rainman Ray it's time for the magic plugin electron investigator I think, you are 100% correct in what you say you must look after your self take care good buddy from the UK
It might have already been mentioned, but you removed what looks like foam from under the front of the intake. I didn't see you reinstall it when you put the intake bake on so does it have to go bake on?
So when did rap take over from classic rock in the garage? Thumbs down.
This guy is making a mistake with his money…..pay the shop for the diagnosis after you pull the parts cannon out and fail if you do your own work that is
Took me 2 hours, a long wobbly extension, a special socket, and a lot of cuts on my hand to reach back there but it got done.
Car crap part🤣🤣🤣 If this was my vehicle l would spend the extra money on genuine parts
Clear the engine codes after replacing the sensor and you’ll see the oil pressure gauge will start working 😉
I change my oil sending unit on my 08 GMC sierra 5.3 never took the intake off that’s just a waste of time man
