    It depends on what is leaking. If it is the rear main crank seal, then yes the engine has to come out, if it is the valve cover gaskets or intake manifold, then no.

    Sounds like oil pressure sensor. Need special socket to replace it. Unplug it screw off old one screw in new one it should already have thread sealer on it. Plug it back in. It's happened about half a dozen times to me in the last 18 years screwing around with gm.
