Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.

Stutters meaning a misfire is felt?

Ay warning lights on?

Was this immediate after the oil change?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No it fine the day of oil change. It just started yesterday. RPMs won't rev more than 3. I tried to reset the throttle system since it electronic. I started after rest and starts fine for a couple of seconds then it goes back to stuttering. It idles fine at 1rpm but then it drops to 1/2 rpm

Is the max 3000 rpm in drive or park?

Any warning lights on?

What viscosity oil was used?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
max is 3 in park oil engine light came on 10-30
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 6 months ago.

Step one is to get the right engine oil into the vehicle. You should be running 5-20 synthetic blend. The correct oil is needed for correct cam timing. All of these issues can be caused by the cams not adjusting correct from the wrong oil.

In park there is a rev limiter that prevents damaging the engine reving it with no load.
