Hello. The oil change should not cause the car to bounce or shake. This may be unrelated to the oil change and may be a sign of a more serious problem and should be looked at by a qualified mechanic at your earliest convenience. A certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to perform a proper oil change and inspect the vibration problem as needed.
