I had someone come look at my car (big mistake I should have done I it myself). He said the spark plugs needed to be changed and while he was changing them he was revving the engine. He didn't put the spark plugs back correctly. I got the spark plugs in order but now my car will not start. It has power but does not turn over.

What could be the problem?

    Welcome to the site. Are you sure the engine was running while the person was changing the spark plugs? That sounds like a crazy thing to do. And how do you know the spark plugs were not installed correctly by him? How did you get the plugs "in order"?

It sounds like you need to charge your battery then the car will turn over and you can troubleshoot why it's not starting.

You can either

  • jump start the car from another car using some jumper cables


  • you can put the car on a battery charger to get the battery charged

Once you get it turning over, you can try and figure out the 'will not start' issue.
