P0010 and P0011

So my CEL has been on for a bit now and I finally went to advance to check the code. Those are the two codes that popped up. I looked them up and found they are cam position sensor related. Would be that easy as to just replace the sensor? I also read somewhere that it could be oil level related and I was due for an oil change so I did that and no change. I'm getting a bucking at low rpm's. If I'm going 25 in 4th or 35-40 in 5th it will buck like crazy. What do you guys think? '09 LT XFE, no engine mods other than K&N drop in.

More than likely the sensor is good since it's giving you a code. The cam actuator need proper viscosity to keep running properly if you wait too long between oil changes you take the chance of contaminating the cam actuators. Oil treatment might free it but you might have to change it eventually.

Alright, sounds good, I'll get the oil treatment. Does it make a difference that the car has only ever had synthetic in it?
