I have a 1995 volkswagen cabrio and it ran perfectly fine. Today I got an oil change and afterwards I was on the highway and whenever my car hit 50 mph it would start to seriously shake. The shaking went away as soon as I hit 60. I thought maybe wheel balancing would fix but them the car beeped amd the oil light flawed on for two seconds then went off. What could be causing this shaking???

need more info on the shaking to help, dont think the oil change would cause that, but make sure you used the correct oil and filter. The vw filter uses a valve internally and i have seen engines fail for not using the correct oil filter.
