The CEL came on and it threw codes P1124 (O2 sensor) and P1531 (camshaft adjustment sensor bank 1). Camshaft sensor replaced and the CEL went out. Got car home and it wouldn't start back up. It threw 8 codes including the first two listed previously. Crank sensor replaced and CEL light went out. Got car home, and the CEL is on again. I don't know the codes that it's throwing right now...
Worn cam lobe required new camshaft, lifters and related components
