Cel p0011

Wasn't sure where to put this, hope this is okay. This is a case of a solved P0011 CEL, i figured i would post my experience and solution for anyone else coming across that CEL code.

During the searching i did about the code after it came up on my car, a lot of people said that dirty oil, or low oil pressure causes the code.

For some reason my car had too HIGH of an oil level. I think it had like 7 quarts in it. It looks like the dealership that sold it to me just dumped in a couple new bottles of oil to make it look fresh, but i did notice it was pretty over the lines on the dipstick when i got it, just didn't really think anything of it. The CEL only came on about 1900-2,000 miles into the car. But the oil had started turning black by the first few hundred miles. So all i did was change the oil and I've been CEL free for the past 1,000+ miles.

So if you run into this code, it could be as simple as changing your oil, or having too low or high oil.. Hope this thread isn't useless and actually helps someone searching it up.
