Hi these are oil control codes, hows the vehicle running and can you tell me if any work has been done recently?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No recent work. When I clear the codes it runs real good. When the check engine light comes on and you step on the gas it feels like it's in limp mode.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I actually don't know if any recent work has been done. This car was purchased from auction.
Expert:  tamaz replied 1 year ago.

When you clear the codes how long before they come back,how many miles,and what condition is the engine oil in

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The codes come back right away. I am home so can't remember the miles or oil condition
Expert:  tamaz replied 1 year ago.

The oil level and condition is crucial,this also can be caused by sticking oil control valves but it is rare to have both banks at fault.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will check the oil tomorrow and let you know what I find
Expert:  tamaz replied 1 year ago.

Great,let me know.
