Some people make the mistake of oiling the new filter before it's installed. The New filter is pre-oiled and if it's oiled again ,it will clog the filter, in which case the filter has to be cleaned and re-oiled.

Check oil first, Low oil sensor will shut down if more than a quart low. Change fuel filter, could be fuel starvation, change the air filter. stopped up air filter will put MAF sensor out of range. PERFORM OBDII SCAN SOON.

check air filter, might be plugged, [dirty so engine is starving for air.] check fuel lines & filters, dirt blockage need replaceing, check for fuel leaks in lines etc, uses fuel & then sucks air causing it to stop, listen to see if fuel pump is running properly & not stuttering could be short in it's wiring

Engine idols rough, and stalls sometime when slowing down or stopped. Seems to get not so great of mileage too

Sounds like it needs a service. First things I'd do is Change the air filter unless fairly new, change the fuel filter unless nearly new. Then check the HT, Leads, Plugs, Coil etc make sure all appear good and clean connections.

If its not been service (Oil/filter change) for a year, then that needs doing as well.

Tach dies and engine stalls sometimes. i can't press the gas pedal too far or the engine revs and the car slows down but doesn't stall.

Sounds as if it is starving for air or fuel. check the air filter and replace fuel filter. if it still does it check the fuel pressure. if it is low replace the fuel pump
