Hi there,

Is the car running really poorly at the moment?

Was anything done to try and resolve these codes as of yet?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is running a little rough. And no nothing has been done yet
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
could the codes all be related to one thing?
Expert:  Mike V. replied 1 year ago.

Ok thank you.

Most of the codes are O2 sensor codes. I think the one code on the list that could possibly cause all these others is the P0011. This is the variable intake timing control solenoid. If this isn't working then the timing may be off. This is going to generate the multi cylinder misfire code and the O2 sensor codes.

Start by checking the oil level and make sure it's full. The IVT solenoid uses oil pressure to work properly, so if the car is low on oil it might appear.

Please check it and let me know. Thanks.
