service engine soon light on and sputter

just had my oil changed. less than 75 miles later the service engine light soon light comes on and there is a slight sputter in the car. when accelerating it is not nearly as noticeable but more so when at an idle. what could this be? the auto logic system was hooked up to it after having the oil changed and everything checked up ok

I just had the same issue. Can you tell us what happened Leetheman?

Recently got an oil change and one day i turn on the car it vibrates and sputters and the check engine soon light comes on. Dealership wants $125 to diagnose and they say it is is most likely a cylinder misfire which would cost $400 + per cylinder.

Find someone that can read codes, diy your coil pack and spark plugs and tell your dealer to shit on himself ...
