HELP!!! Messed Up Pretty Good... 3 Codes
Some back story:
I changed my oil and when I went to start the car all I heard was oil spitting out and my oil light went on. I shut the engine off at the instant the oil was coming out (about 3-6 seconds the car was on). Lifted the car up again and found all my oil on the floor of the shop. Turned out that the old oil filter gasket was stuck and I did not see it before putting on the new filter. Two gaskets do not seal properly.
Any way I cleaned everything up, drained everything again and put fresh oil in again. Started the car up and it started fine. Just a whole bunch of oil smoke coming from the engine bay (assuming it is residual on hot components when oil sprayed every where)
I was able to drive my car home from my shop (approx 23 miles) with no drive ability issues. I got home, let the car run for a bit to try to burn off more of the residual and then shut it off for the night.
The next morning on my way to work I started my car up fine and went on my way. Still some oil smell but no smoke. I got about 3 miles from my house when I hit a stop light and while waiting I felt my engine sputter a bit, and my idle started to fluctuate. You can hear it clearly since my exhaust is pretty open. Once all that happened my CEL came on so I turned it around and went straight back home (another 3 miles) to switch cars.
I took this opportunity to buy myself a OBD-II scanner just because I've always wanted one. I scanned my car (which sat all day about 8 hours) and came up with these three codes first in this order;
P0011- Camshaft Position Acuator Bank 1 Circuit Malfunction
P0016- Cam/Crankshaft Position Correlation A, Bank 1
P0011- (same code as the first one)
Next step I took was to check my spark plugs. Pulled out all 6 and 4/6 of them had oil on them. I installed brand new plugs just for good measure not expecting it to fix the problem. After that I ran the car for codes again and came up with these 3 in this order;
P0011- Camshaft Position Acuator Bank 1 Circuit Malfucntion
P0011- (Pending Code, aka continuous monitor codes or maturing codes)
P0403- EGR Flow Circuit Malfunction
Has anyone ever had this problem or has seen this? Any input is welcome. Sorry for the long write-up. From the way the codes are coming up I'm assuming it is a timing related problem (EGR code has me stumped). I'm just totally lost as to how I can correct this or if I should just have one of the technicians at my work look at it.
