http://www.obd-codes.com/p0606........http://www.obd-codes.com/p0012.....Looks like your going to need to replace the PCM. P0012 might disappear if you do. So work on P0606 first. .

There is a recall on the PCM aka ECU for the 2008 Corolla: Recall ID # 81862 - ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING Recall Date: AUG 26, 2010 Model Affected: 2008 Toyota Corolla Summary: TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2005-2008 COROLLA AND COROLLA MATRIX VEHICLES. THE ENGINE CONTROL MODULE (ECM) FOR THE SUBJECT MODELS EQUIPPED WITH THE 1ZZ-FE ENGINE AND TWO-WHEEL DRIVE MAY HAVE BEEN IMPROPERLY MANUFACTURED. THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT A CRACK MAY DEVELOP AT CERTAIN SOLDER POINTS OR ON VARISTORS ON THE CIRCUIT BOARD.

From http://engine-codes.com/p0606_toyota.html P0606 Toyota - ECM Processor Error Possible causes - Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM) - Engine Control Module (ECM) Harness power supply circuit is open or shorted - Engine Control Module (ECM) Programming

P0012 Toyota - Camshaft Position Timing Over-Retarded Possible causes - Dirty or low engine oil - Damaged ECM

All that my point being Tom has it right on.
