97' blazer oil issue?

My girlfriend's 97' chevy blazer sputters and looses power when under load (like going up a big hill), but once the oil is changed it runs fine. What is going on here???

When she first told me about this I was skeptical! Apparently it has happened the entire time she has had it (bought it used). This is how she knows its "ready for an oil change".
Before I changed the oil I checked the level, it was very low so I filled it back up, but it still had the same issue. A few days later I gave it an oil and filter change and sure enough, it runs fine!
Ive never seen anything like it, nor has my dad and uncle who have been working on cars their entire lives.. Any ideas?
