Problem comes up for my ML350 after an oil change

First time doing service outside MB dealer in 5 years, problem comes up for my ML350 after an oil change.
Hope I can find my answers here and give others a little help with the same problem!

Just did Air filter and Cabin filter myself by following the guide on this forum, this is a really helpful site!

Just changed the engine oil last week at an Independent Mercedes & BMW shop, they also fixed a engine oil leak. Now every morning when I start the vehicle the engine speed meter goes down like normal, but it suddenly goes up a bit then going back and force several times, it feels like someone steped on the gas pedal. It will become normal after a minute. Everything is normal during the day. This will happen again on the next morning. So I assume it only happens when the engine is cold.

The shop used "MOTUL8100-5w40 x-clean synth oil", wrote on the paper work. This is my first time change oil outside MB dealer, I think they used different engine oil than MB dealer.
I found this message "ZZSYNTH QS SYNTHETIC OIL" on the paper work from MB dealer on my last service in Apr 2010.
I don't know if the shop used correct oil for the ML or the engine does not recognize this new oil so it went wrong at cold start. Any commend would be appreciated.
