It looks like you have a misfire on one or more cylindes. It could be a bad plug, ignition coil or something you did when you changed the oil like nocking some vacum lines or the britle plastic tube that goes from the valve cover to the air valve under the intake. And get the codes read.

hey,

if you have a code Reader, just swap the coil nr 5 with the coil nr 2 and the sparkplug nr 5 with nr1.
then you can see if the fault "moves" and identify the faulty component.
ist common that a ignition coil Fails.

hope this helps, Daniel
