possible vacuum leak, such that the vacuum accumulator does not deflate fully to assist...perhaps you are hearing a hissing sound...anyways it's somewhere in your vacuum circuit there is a leak...perhaps a hose got knocked off by mistake when you did the oil change...just one man's opinion....Vacuum related!~
