Check the obvious first, check the engine oil level and other fluids under the hood, How far had you driven after the oil change when the engine stopped running? If the engine had run out of oil you would have experienced a loss of power and knocking sounds prior to the engine having stopped running .I hope it was purely coincidental that the engine stopped running after you had had the oil changed. It could be one of many other random and unrelated things that caused the engine to cut out/stop running.

i had the same issue after oil change last week, i changed both the engine/auto transmission. just after about 40km drove after the change, the RPM started to drop intermittently for 10-20 seconds while I was speeding at 80km. anyhow the engine did not kill. (No engine warning lights whatsoevr ) An hour after that, I stopped for about 15 mins. When I put on the reverse gear,at low idling mode the engine went dead. Reignited 3 times than ok. No issue during high speed driving. Today the issue came back, engine went dead while i was slowing down at the junction /traffice light - but this time, all warning lights on, i had to shift to neutral and reignited. Any relations from the oil change to these issues? As it never happened before the oil change. Please help. (car model = Nissan N16 - 2005)
