P0012 code

I just got this and no search comes up with anything in the gen 3 group. It did come on after a recent oil change.

1. Should I try another oil change?
2. Anyone have any good write ups on how to replace the oil control valve?
3. Any other ideas?

My 2012 had that code last year. I checked the oil control valve screens, they were clear. Also changed the oil, still came back. Ended up replacing the oil control valve with a $20 one from Rock Auto, and that fixed it. Over 5k miles ago.
Do you have any pictures or advise on it? How long did it take?

It took me about 1-1/2 hours at the most. Although that will vary greatly based upon mechanical proficiency, etc. I didn't remove the exhaust manifold completely, just removed the bolts enought to move it up enough to access the ocv.

This should help:
