    Check your transmission fluid level properly for starters. The oil change should not have

    If the oil change was done by a shop, such as Jiffy lube or some other quick change place. If they check your air filter, they could have knocked your mass air flow sensor a little lose. It's located somewhere on the intake hose that leads to your air filter.

    Well if you think an oil change is the cause the next question is; did you check your oil? do you know how?
