Default Engine Started but shut itself off after 1 second

It happened to me once before...and this morning it happened again...

I started my car this morning....it started at 1500 rpm then i saw the rpm droped to 0 rpm and the engine was off...i tried to start it again...then it worked....

it happened after my recent oil change, so i'm suspecting that it's the oil....

i'm the second onwer of the car...according to the maintenance manual, the previous onwer used Mobil 1 since day 1....then when he sold it to the dealer...the dealer put mineral oil...i used it for 6000km and i did the oil change recently with Motul at another dealer....will this info help you guy diagnose the problem?

thx in advance

it happens to me about once a year. Maybe your IACV was trying to get to the right position, but since it moves so slow, your engine died. When you turn your key to run and hear the fuel pump prime, wait a second or two, then crank. And when cranking, hold it for an extra half-second or so, I've never had a problem doing that.
