Default camry 2005: why do I feel even small bumps on the street?

Hi there:

A few days ago I had my camry 2005 service for 35,000 miles
where beyond the oil change they also rotated the tires.

After the service driving is not a pleasure any more:
I can feel even the smallest bump on the street while the engine
appears to be more noisy than before.

What do you think is the problem?

Any help/suggestion is very welcome!

How old and what weight was old oil, what is new oil weight, oil gets
thick when old, is there oil in it. You need to learn about your car

Ransley:

Thank you for your reply.

The tires are not overinflated - basically they seem be like before the service.

I am not sure what oil change has to do with driving behavior ???

You should measure the tire pressures using a tire gauge. The better
dial types are about $5 each at Sears or local parts stores. Check the
grade of oil. I like to use the thickest *approved* grade for the
temperature range.

You say it bumps now, when was the last time before the service you
checked tires with an accurate gauge?? What are they now with that
same accurate gauge? To say "basicly they seem like before" "Seem" is
a guess, an uneducated nothing. You said the engine is now noisy, so
what does driving behavior have to do with Noise, it doesnt , oil can
make it noisier, and quieter. You need to learn about more than cars.
Ok they switched motors and shocks on you if thats what you want to
believe!
