Hi there:

If the wrong oil filter was used, and you changed from synthetic to conventional oil, it’s a good idea to have the right oil filter installed and use a semi-synthetic blend oil. It’s possible that the different oil could be causing the engine to idle slightly higher, but most likely that’s a vacuum leak or other fuel system component. If you need somebody to complete this service for you, feel free to contact a professional mobile mechanic to complete a engine idle is rough inspection.
