asked by on June 30, 2016

I went to Jiffy Lube got a oil change now my car running crazy Rpms goes up and down

My car has 126000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You need to have the air cleaner housing and the inlet tube inspected to see if they left a mass air sensor disconnected or if a tube came loose or got damaged. If they cannot locate the issue and you need some help, then call a mechanic to diagnose your high RPM problem before a more serious problem like misfire or stalling happens.
