Changing your oil, and even mixing synthetic with regular oil will not cause your engine to stop running. As long as you have oil, it doesn't matter what kind. Poncho is right, there is another problem that you need to look for. Run through the steps you followed when you did the oil change....did you do anything else? Did you have to unhook anything to reach into the engine for the oil filter? Did you forget to hook something back up? Did you change anything besides the oil? Maybe you accidentally loosened a plug wire or other wire.

There's lots of reasons why it may not run. Do a compression check.
Good luck.

Chickie.
