I had a similar situation, except mine did not set a code. I was getting high oil pressure all of the time. These engines run high oil pressure until they reach operating temperature (high 90ish), then they drop down to normal (high 30ish). I found out that the intake manifold has to be removed to replace the oil sending unit as it is inside the engine. I think I was at the dealership about 3 hours.
