Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. Since the issue started after your oil change, I would highly suspect that the oil change person left a vacuum line disconnected in the engine compartment; or, he for some reason detached the air tube that connects to the front of the throttle body (or it is loose). In any case, this really sounds like your guy left something loose or disconnected. If you open the hood and look real close at the tube between the air filter box and the motor, the problem will probably be in that area. Can you check that and then get back to me? Thanks
