My car starts but does not stay running

I have a 2002 Toyota Camry SE with 61490 miles. The car starts but does not stay running. It turns over fine, the check engine light is not on, but the car does not stay running. What could be causing this? I recently got an oil change and the car checked.
I did push the gas pedal but as soon as I took my foot off the pedal the car stopped.

Do you
have the same problem?

I dont think so. Probably your gas pump its not delivering enought fuel.
Did you tried to keep the engine running by pushing the gas pedal.
How long has been doing this?

My 2003 is doing the same thing-except the check engine light comes on when the car cuts off-mine also will stay on if I give it gas, but I have to catch it quickly-mine will sometimes do it 2 or 3 times before it stays started. No one can figure out what the problem is with mine either.
