Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.

There should be more codes, are you using a generic low cost scan tool that can only see engine codes?

Do you have the ability to check the fuel pressure?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Could possibly accomplish tho have not done before. No problems with acceleration or performance (other than slowly diminishing fuel economy over the many miles/years). I was thinking more of an oil pressure problem somewhere. Plan to change oil and filter today, clean MAF, change air filter with OEM today. Thinking about swapping VVT solenoid to see if code changes while I wait for a new one. Will probably take in to dealership next week. Is the VVT filter accessible? location?

Chris, it was a missing oil filter element tube: collapsed oil filter. purchased tube and new filter cap and changed filter/oil problem fixed.
