Oil light and check engine light

    Hey everyone,

    I have a 06 scion tc and I change the oil every 5,000 miles. For the last year the oil light will flicker and come on and then the check engine light comes on. If I take it in for a oil change it will go off, then both lights will come on every 3,000 miles. I have done this for the last 4-5 visits. Also I get the p0012 code for my engine and I am not sure if that is related. Any help would be appreciated and thank you for your time.
    maybe this will help your search for answers:

    hey anice179, looked it up and found a tsb for it, so it's a known issue on earlier 05 tc's, which looks like you have.. the TSB (technical service bulletin) number is EG009-07 and it's only for 5 years/60k warranty, which you're past by now. But at least the tsb can tell you what to fix and what needs to be done. They said the VIN cut off was a vin BEFORE JTKDE1#7#60143882. It's the VVT-i actuator that's gone bad. Looks like in this TSB there is a newer updated design.

    Found the tsb at this link, can google more to find more but this tells the story, your dealer can give you a copy of the tsb too.


    EDIT: also on that site they explain how to replace it, doesn't look that difficult at all!


    but the part looks like a list price of $246 and a discount price at (a toyota dealer selling parts online) for $185. New part number is 13050-28021
