Q: Car sputtering in park 2009 saturn vue

asked by on

Put vehicle in park, and after exiting vehicle it sounded like a light sputter. The lights on the inside of the vehicle were slightly going dim and brighter as well. The Vehicle id due for an oil change, and was wondering if low oil lever could cause a sputtering like this, or if its another issue that should be looked at. Vehicle seems to be driving and accelerating fine, just makes the slight sputter when stopped.
