when was the last timing belt done?? You will also get cam/crank correlation codes if the timing has slipped a tooth or more (or new belt installed a tooth or more off). If you aren't sure when it was done last i'd take one of the cam gear covers off the front of the engine and visually inspect the belt. I'd mark the belt and turn the engine over by hand until you see the mark again. The inside of the belt with all the teeth is what you really need to look at. Hopefully it's not your timing belt slipping, if it slips to far outta time there can be piston to valve contact, so it's best to inspect and check now before something more serious happens.

What he said. Check timing, we see people neglecting to change belts all the time which results in stretched belts and skipped timing belts.

To do a quick valve timing check all you need is a 10mm socket to remove the air scoop, 5mm allen to remove the top timing cover (I think there's 4 or 5 bolts) to see the camshaft gears and a 1/2 or 3/8 rachet with a 24mm socket to turn the crankshaft bolt clockwise until you are at 0 degrees TDC. Then inspect the cam gears to see where the timing marks are. If they are not aligned you have found your problem.
