    Camshaft Sensor Replacement

    Quick question. What is a fair price to pay for a camshaft sensor replacement (parts/labor)?

    Labor time is 3 hours. The sensor is about $75. At $100/hr labor (average dealer) figure $375 total. Independants usually charge less labor, so perhaps only around $325.

    You must also figure in the crank relearn procedure that any decent dealer should do. Some charge, some don't - it could be as much as 1 hour labor.. Few independants can even do the procedure.

    The re-learn data deals with CPS and reluctor relationship/variations and should not have to be done with a cam sensor swap.

    I know that. But GM does recommend the procedure when anything is changed/touched that relates to either engine timing or engine timing monitoring systems. I will try to find the now superceded TSB with that note in it...

    I wouldn't say it's surprising to see it suggested; I wonder what the reasoning is...
