    My check engine light came on on my 2020 JL Rubicon and showed the code P000A. Anyone have this issue?

    P000A code help

    That is a cam position sensor code?

    Does your oil need to be changed?
    Are you using the correct weight oil?
    They skip bad cam sensor or wiring.

    Cause:
    ENGINE OIL LEVEL LOW
    ENGINE OIL AERATED OR CONTAMINATED
    INCORRECT ENGINE OIL FILTER
    INSUFFICIENT OIL PRESSURE DUE TO A MECHANICAL FAILURE IN THE OILING SYSTEM
    VVT INTAKE SOLENOID 1/1 FAULTY OR INTERMITTENTLY BINDING/STICKING
    CAMSHAFT 1/1 OIL CONTROL VALVE FAULTY OR INTERMITTENTLY BINDING/STICKING SPOOL VALVE
    CAMSHAFT TONE WHEEL MISALIGNED
    CAMSHAFT 1/1 PHASER FAULTY OR INTERMITTENTLY BINDING/STICKING
    POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE (PCM)

    The oil has recently been changed but is a little darker than expected. I drove it home last night and the check engine light was off. I live on top of the mountain and was following a car going about 30mph in 3rd gear, the Jeep felt like it was going to stall out. The check engine light started flashing, I geared down to second and drove it about 100 yards and the check engine light went off and it started running fine to the house. When I geared down to second I could tell the HP dropped. It does have a little rough idle.

    The camshaft has several places that are worn.
