I've searched the googles and mud forums and am not finding much. Deets: 2006 LX470, VVTI, 206k miles

I recently got a P0011 code and am not having any symptoms, runs perfectly. I did just change the oil less than a hundred miles ago. I changed the timing belt & water pump a few thousand miles ago and shortly after the truck shut off, turns out I missed tying the camshaft sensor up (driver's side) and the belt cut into it. Dealer changed it and its been running fine since...

The only thing I found remotely close was here: P0021 Code w/ Check Engine Light - https://forum.ih8mud.com/threads/p0021-code-w-check-engine-light.680304/
...but there was no final resolution. Hoping the brain trust here has some insight. THANKS!!

Following up here...

I got this CEL shortly after changing my oil. When I bought the oil, they didn't have the regular Mobile1 Synthetic I normally use so I reluctantly got the "High Mileage" version. After some research, I thought that the high mileage oil may have messed with the Variable Valve Timing solenoid so I changed the oil and filter again (less than 100 miles) and test drove it in the neighborhood last night.... still had the CEL :(
Made a service appointment at the Lexus dealer today and on the way, the CEL and VSC lights went out.

Not sure if the oil was the issue but certainly seems like it. I will NOT be using it again
