Hey guys,

2013 GV 2,4l oil pressure light comes on at around 2-3k rpm. Check engine is on p0012 camshaft retarded. Is there a common problem with these 2,4l engines?
Oil level is good, engine runs normally.

oil lights on AND a P0012? just how much oil isn't in it?
Do as Philip says, get a gauge on it quickly, check level and do not drive it like this, you risk serious damage to the engine if it is indeed down on oil pressure.

Oil level is ok. Pressure is unknown. I took it to the shop.

Update!

Mechanic told me that there is no oil pressure but he believes it's a vvti valve that is causing it. Is it possible that valve would stop oil pump from building pressure is this engine, i'm confused.

The only issue with a VVT is a constricted sinter filter, which would not affect the pump pressure.

The pump is ahead of every other component so either
  • an oil intake issue (plugged screen or vacuum break)
  • a bad pump
  • stuck open pressure relief valve or
  • a massive internal leak. (mains)

Did this mechanic actually put a gauge on it??
