Car runs fine but dies randomly

(1999 Ford Taurus)
I just got an oil change in my car two weeks ago and since then its been dying randomly. It gives no warning, no chugging, just dies. The radio wil stay on and everything and after about an hour I can start it back up and it will run fine. When I got my oil change done, they did say that the previous oil filter that they changed, had been very loose. There is no certain time that it dies, I can be going down the interstate, or slowing down at a traffic light, it dies. Jump starting it doesnt work, it just has to sit.

Maybe the computer is sensing a problem and it is shutting down but when the car is cool again it is not noticing the problem. You should be able to scan the info and go from there.
