Your engine has a cylinder miss-firing, that not only shakes the car but makes the check engine light blink the cylinder number that is missing, don't drive the car this way or u will overheat the exhaust catalytic converter, this can cause a fire.

Check engine light blinking car shaking, oil light on after a few miles from starting

May be low oil, low oil pressure (faulty oil pump) or a bad pressure switch. When your at highway speeds the pump, pumps faster & brings the oil to the right PSI. Try a thicker oil than called for, get the oil pressure checked,oil leaks? & get the switch ckd out.

When i step on the gas pedal it shakes and the service engine light comes on blinking

Please check your engine oil- hope the oil change was done recently , if not check the quality of the oil, it can be reduced oil pressure at high RPM that the oil pump is not working well due to a clogged oil filter.
Secondly check the fuel settings and firing timings.

What does the engine service light mean?

It could be unrelated to the oil change unless the filter must be replaced with a mitsubishi one due to the backflow prevention valve built into it.

Have the codes read at autozone and see what they say.
