I've got a 2012...

I've got a 2012 kia forte and it had a DTC P200A and P0011. What the easiest way to fix this and do i have to update the ECM. If I do, how can download updates to the ECM

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Kia Forte. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

Hi thanks, ***** ***** is extremely dirty and according the Line sticker oil not changed for 9000 Miles
Kia Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 8 months ago

I would start with doing oil change ,run it 100 miles ,drop oil again ,take valve cover off, check fro sludge and retest on that

then for sure

Please let me know if you need anything else on it

Thank You
