Please know that the primary purpose of this filter is to clean oil that flows into the AFM lifters... it is not necessarily intended to protect the Oil Pressure sensor. This helps explain why GM placed it... along with the oil pressure sensor, on the AFM oil supply assembly.
If your vehicle does not have the AFM capability, it is not appropriate for this filter as these engines aren't designed to use them.
YouTube as several examples of removing this filter and the oil pressure sensor WITHOUT removing your intake manifold.
To extract the old filter from the engine once the oil pressure sensor has been removed, fit a long bolt... some have said 7/16's into your NEW filter to check fit that just threads inside your new filter. Since the old one is the same size... just screw the bolt into your old one a thread or two then slowly extract the old filter. To install the new one, find the hole, slip the new filter in and press fit it in the hole with your finger. Installing the oil pressure sensor (which you might as well replace as it is a high failure rate item) will insure the filter is seated properly.
A couple suggestions:
1. The 5.3 engine is not the cleanest engine in the world when it comes to oil for a few reasons. As such, the main engine oil filter can clog and go into bypass mode which sends unfiltered oil into this new AFM filter and your oil pressure gauge may indicate an oil pressure problem with or without ODB2 codes.
ALWAYS replace your oil and main engine oil filter when you change this filter. Also, if possible, check this AFM filter at each oil change until you understand how well your engine is maintaining the cleanliness of the oil inside it.
2. If you ever have to remove your intake manifold, remove the plastic noise shield that covers access to the AFM filter-Engine oil pressure sensor. Makes the job of replacing these parts much much easier.
Once I got the old sender unit out, I found a machine bolt that was the right size to thread inside the new screen, and used that bolt to easily pull the old screen out. The old one was pretty dirty and had a small tear in the screen, and the old sender unit had a crack in the plastic part, but it was not leaking. Still, probably a good idea to replace both parts.
I replaced both parts and climbed out of the engine bay (Seriously GM? I can literally stand in the engine bay but you have to put this sensor in such a horrible location?).
I started it up, took it for a test drive, but just as I was pulling back into my driveway it happened again. Once again no dice.
I read on some forums that others had fixed this problem simply by changing their oil. The oil was very dirty and the oil change place had put in a very cheap filter, so I decided that it couldn't hurt to try that before we go dropping oil pans and replacing pick-up tube o-rings and all. So I did an oil and filter change with full-synthetic oil and a Mobile 1 filter. Since then I have run it several times, and so far no more oil pressure problems. The code scanner shows nice consistent oil pressure averaging in the mid 50psi range and the gauge shows similar.
So bottom line -- try changing your oil and filter first. You probably need it anyway.
