The code that came up was 1259, is this related to the low oil? Do i have to head into the dealer to get this sensor reset?
P1259 is a VTEC System Malfunction. Low oil can definitely cause this.

Your mechanic friend should have reset the code when he read it. You can also disconnect the battery or pull the ECU fuse for 10 or so seconds to reset the computer.
