into limp mode if the oil is not changed? It will
slowly gain power but if you try and accelerate to
fast it jerks max speed is also governed

No it will not go into limp mode because of an oil change or lack there of. Reset the light if you don't want to see it. If you are having problems have the trouble codes read. This sound like a misfire.
