      Would need a little more information to be able to give you any advice. Does it CRANK? Does it not crank? BATTERY power? Does every else work fine on the car like headlights, radio, and other electronic devices? Were there any strange noises heard? Reply with some more info and I can help you better!!

      If you can check for compression, that would tell a lot. If there is none, or it is low on one or more cylinders, then something either went wrong with the repair or something else broke. Those cylinder heads have been known to have sticking valves which cause a concern like your having, and that would show as low or no compression as well. If the car jumped time, say for instance the timing chain tensioner broke or is loose, you would still have compression but just be off time causing the no start. I would assume it’s something to do with the previous repair.
