Hi, my name is ***** ***** certified automotive professional with over 25 years experience. I will be glad to assist you with this.
I am sorry to hear that happened. What type oil and filter did you use?
Did you use any other additives?
How many quarts of oil did you put in?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I used 5w 30 and the cartridge filter the car calls for no additives

Aldo now I have noticed a loss of power and when u switch from automatic to manual the plus an minus button do not work
Expert:  Randy replied 2 years ago.
okay, if the engine detects a problem with the oil pressure it will cause those symptoms. I would try another oil filter first. I have seen oil filters that were defective. If the oil filter does not correct the issue then it will be a more serious problem.

Tried that already checking fuses now
Expert:  Randy replied 2 years ago.
okay, it may be coincidental and another issue just happened at the same time that you changed the oil. It will be good to check the obd system for codes.
