Ah Check Engine Light Came on
On way home from work today my check engine light came on on my 2009 Cobalt. 97,715 miles on it. So still under warranty I think cause it was 100k for engine issues.
Was a trouble code of P0014, cause I went straight to Autozone. Might have to go to the dealer. I hope that whatever it is, is still covered and can get fixed in a timely manner. Figures it's gotta happen during the week and this weekend supposed to go to a concert out of state.
Anyways the trouble was something to do with the camshaft phase angle has exceeded its tolerance value.
loose cam or crank sensor
excessive timing chain free play
blocked oil passage in the camshaft actuator
incorrect oil quality or viscosity(wondering if this might be the issue, I do always use the correct oil, but I'm at 13% oil life so being higher up in mileage maybe the oil life might not be spot on like it used to be. Gotta go check the level in a bit when the car has sat for a while.
So I drove home just fine and didn't notice anything odd, should I be good to go to drive to work the rest of the week? Not sure how major of an issue this is?

And on a side note. I just go check the oil and the stick was barely coming up with anything. Like the very tip of it had some on it. I added in almost a quart and then upon checking it was showing up one notch below the fill mark. So not sure what's up with that. I'll check it again in the morning to see where I stand.
