Sounds like you have a gremlin running around under the hood, just kidding. The check engine light was probably caused by a failing sensor, or it could have been a loss of oil pressure due to the old oil. If the problem never returns then I think it is safe to say it was a loss of oil pressure, but if it is a failing sensor this will occur again. When and if it does happen again do not reset the computer, take the car to an autozone(they diagnose check engine lights for free) if you have one around you. The diagnostic will tell you exactly what sensor has caused this, but if you reset the computer ther is nothing to diagnose. And a dealer or shop can charge 60-90 dollars for the diagnsis. Based on my expirence if it is a sensor it is probably the MAP(Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor) this sensor is probably the only one that will completly shut down the car, most other sensors will fail and your check engine light comes on but the car stays running.
Hope this helps

With the key in the ignition (but not turned), press and hold the Odometer Reset Button on the right hand side of the panel. While still holding that button, turn the key (although not far enough to start the engine) and then press and hold the Minute button on the left side of the instrument pane(if pressing doesnt work try turning the knob clockwise until service light has gone off and skip the pressing)l. Release both buttons at the same time.

P0411 Secondary Air Injection System Incorrect Flow Detected
The 4mm inside diameter vaccuum hose gets pinched between the lower intake manifold and the secondary air pump housing, flattening it over time.
Here's a link to the steps to fix yourself if you are mechanically inclined...
P1128 Long Term Fuel Trim Is Too Lean
It is very likely this code is coming up because of the vacuum hose as well.

There are round access panels more or less behind each tail light in
the trunk. There is a small slot at the edge that you can insert a wide
blade screwdriver to pop the panel out. then look for the star shaped knob
Now it will be possible to remove the entire tail light by using a thin flat blade. A putty knife, especially a plastic one would be good. Being careful not to damage the paint, slip the blade under the lower part of the tail light lens and pry the tail light assembly out.
Once the assembly is out, both the turn signal and stop/rear lamp sockets are exposed. The connector can be removed by pushing in a little tab on the side and pulling the connector straight out. It may not be absolutely necessary to remove the connector if the wiring is long enough, but when the connector is removed, it is easier to remove the lamp socket.
hope i helped
