Good day people

This morning after I started my car (W203 / 2002), I got an error message that the cooling level is insufficient. I drove it for 5 Km, to out local station, and back this afternoon to home. On my way home, I checked the coolant level, and the level was on full. I drove further to home, but it felt as though the car is sluggish and if the gearbox transfer is not even. I asked a technician to check the car for me, and we found the following codes:

P0010: P0010 A Camshaft Position Actuator Circuit (Bank 1)
P0020: P0020 A Camshaft Position Actuator Circuit (Bank 2)
P0135: P0135 02 Sensor Heater Circuit (Bank 1 Sensor 1)
P0141: P0141 02 Sensor Heater Circuit (Bank 1 Sensor 2)
P0365: P0365 Camshaft Position Sensor "B" Circuit (Bank 1)

Everything seems to show that there is a "short circuit" somewhere.

I post the diagnostic to the post.

I saw under another post, that oil leaking into the sensors might cause this.

The car was serviced about 6000 Km ago, but before that, I 3 times had to add 500 ml oil. The dealer also told me that there is a oil leak, but at that stage I have not had the money to get it fixed. (since the service I have not added any oil.)

Do you think it might be a faulty circuit or live wire that touches ground somewhere, or a sensor that died?
