Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You have a few different issues going on there. Two are misfire codes, you have an oxygen sensor code and one for catalytic converter efficiency, one for a cam timing solenoid.

Did you clear the codes to see if they all returned?

How long had the engine light been on before this?
Had you been losing power leading up to this?
