You could have an electronic problem on the main printed circuit board or in the feed length stepper motor. You may also just have a bound section in the feed mechanism. I don't think there is a cure all answer for this problem.
A 1/2 second hesitation between depressing the foot control and motor response is very common in these machines
If your husband lubricated the bushings on the upper and lower shafts of your 990 I recommend that you have him remove all of the lubricant possible and keep your fingers crossed. The 990 is a self-lubricating machine and applying machine oil to these bushing will probably cause them to seize. The 990 should never be lubricated in many of the places you would lubricate many machines. Hopefully, you haven't done irreparable damage.

You do not oil that machine with those holes in the top.
The Zig Zag problem is caused by a finger near the pattern selector that is just starting to stick. Take off the rear cover with the one screw located at the top rear of the machine. (lift the handle up to see the screw) Then pull the rear cover upward and slightly outward to remove the cover. Looking into the rear of the machine, you'll see a shaft about 4 to 5 inches long that the camstack moves up and down on as you turn the pattern selector on the front of the machine. The finger that is sticking is to the left of the shaft (usually it's silver), it has a spring on it. Don't remove the spring. Gently move the finger back and forth after you put some teflon oil on the top and bottom of the finger. Also try to move the finger up and down the shaft it's on as you move the finger in and out, it only has a small travel so don't force it. Your goal is to just get a little lubrication underneath it to free it.

I suspect you are correctly threading the machine but the timing of the needle and bobbin hook is off. When the threaded needle goes into the bobbin area, a pointed hook grabs the thread and loops it with the bobbin thread. Something is catching when the needle starts to come up that is not allowing the bobbin thread to be pulled back through the needle plate opening by the upper thread. With machine threaded and bobbin in place, have the bobbin area open if possible and watch the thread interaction when the needle goes down. To set the hook/needle timing, normally covers have to be removed. Suggest taking it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service.

Many older sewing machine (and some newer ones too) have radio-interference-suppression capacitors fitted in the foot controls to eliminate motor noise being radiated back down the mains power line. Many of these, especially the ones fitted across the rheostat (speed controller) in the foot pedal go partially or fully short-circuited, this meaning the machine starts sewing when the foot controller is plugged in. The solution is simple: get a qualified serviceman to take the capacitor out of circuit to see if that fixes the problem. If it does, then a replacement suppression capacitor of a suitable high voltage, at least 1,000V working, should be sourced and fitted. Just removing the faulty cap is not recommended and there is likely to be radio interfence spread all around the neighbourhood if you run the machine without the suppressor. The Radio Inspectors will not be amused. Good Luck.
