Here's a link to a post where someone replaced the pressure switch hemselves- then had to have more work done by a dealer. The additional work was done under an Emission warranty which for them was 70000 miles. That warranty could vary depending on what state you live in.

Took it to the dealer this morning, it’s not covered by warranty. They need to replace the rocker arm pressure switch, It’s about $300.🙃 That caused the car to go into limp mode. It’s scary when your on the interstate doing 70, and suddenly all you can do is 15. Doesn’t help when you have two toddlers in the back and semis blowing by you.

That that part is not that expensive and it's right on top of the engine and can be changed in 5 minutes it shouldn't cost $300. It's right behind the oil dipstick.

Added: I guess with the diagnosis charge. Ya.

Rocker arm oil solenoids/switches are covered for 3yrs/50K miles in a few states under the emissions warranty. It will be interesting to see if this solves your original unknown noise problem. Not fun with the family in the car with you. Thankfully you were able to get off the interstate safely.
