How many miles on the car?
What does the oil look like? What kind of oil and weight? How long has it been in the car? Miles?
What filter brand was used?
I think I would change the oil and filter to eliminate them.
#7 of 7 engine shuts off, then on quickly, making car "jump"

The bonneville starting having this issue at 96,000 miles. It is resolved, so I wanted to post it here as I come here looking for help sometimes. It would act as if the fuel was being completely shut off, then turned back on for a half second causing the car to "jump" or surge during driving and idling. It was very intermittant. The mechanic found the problem to be the mass air flow sensor. I dont know what it does, but it solved the issue. Hopefully this will help someone else. Also, as a side note, I've been filling up gas every 300 miles since the fuel guage quit reading correctly around 60,000 miles. I had the same issue with my old pontiac aztek.
